狸tanuki cafe serves boutique coffee and tea along with a delicious breakfast menu, and a variety of fresh baked goods. We hand make everything from local ingredients including bread, pies and cafe treats.

We offer our own in house coffee blend and speciality single-origin bean, which use the hand drip technique to serve a quality of coffee un-available elsewhere in Nozawa.
