Hankering for a trip to the beach? Missing the feel of sand underneath your feet? Look no farther than Shibuya’s Udagawacho, the site of a new branch of popular cafe Alee Beach.
The floor of the cafe, which opened October 20, is covered real white sand, offering a tropical resort-like atmosphere in the heart of Tokyo.
Aside from the sand, there are also swing-type seats, hammocks and divan sofas, making Alee Beach the most relaxing cafe in town. Visiting is like taking a mini vacation, all without leaving the city.
Meanwhile, the original Alee Beach, also in Shibuya, is featuring a pair of Angel Wings by artist Colette Miller—and they’re the first the artist has done in Japan. Miller’s wings will also be making their way to the new location soon.
