Opened in 1910, Café Paulista is thought to be the origin of all classic kissaten in Japan. It’s one of the first coffee chains in the world and is currently the oldest café in operation in Tokyo. The current building, however, is from 1970, exuding plenty of vintage charm with leather booths and chandeliers. Throughout the century, famous writers gathered at Paulista. John Lenon and Yoko Ono also visited.
