A distinctive building, “KOE HOUSE”


Within a 5-minute walk from Jiyugaoka Station. A big distinctive building suddenly appears front of us. Its design features wooden walls and roof and large glass windows.

This is “KOE HOUSE”.


Food, Drink and the signs of “EAT IN” and “TAKE OUT” are displayed on the glass window in front of the street.

”We put those signs on the window because people didn’t recognize us as a café when we had just opened.

Since those window signs were made, people passing by could notice us and we receive more customers” said Mr. Genjo.

Stylish but not snobbish. It has a relaxed atmosphere.


”KOE green” in which we made an interview with Mr. Genjo is on the first floor.

The café with large windows and high ceilings looks spacious and the interior design mainly using wooden products is very stylish.

But it is not snobbish and has a nice and relaxed atmosphere.
