Wad Omotenashi Cafe
Nestled right in the middle of Osaka’s trendy Minami Semba area, this bright and airy café feels like a Japanese oasis. This isn’t the place to come for a quick coffee; the highlight is the traditional Japanese teas. The entire space is dedicated to Japanese aesthetics: matcha is prepared in the same style as in a tea ceremony, a small Japanese confectionary called wagashi is served and there are displays of ceramics from new artists each month. If you really want to treat yourself, do not pass up the shaved ice in traditional flavours like green tea or brown sugar.
