Art Space and Cafe Okura Shimizuya

Cafe
"This gallery and cafe, a five-minute walk from JR Bungo-Taketa Station, operates out of a remodeled public bathhouse which was in use up to 1978. Tubs, faucets, and other bathhouse accoutrements have been left as-is in the first floor dining space, which is still divided into ""men's"" and ""women's"" ""bathing"" areas. Men and women, however, are free to eat and sit down in either area. The cafe's seasonal small dish set meal is particularly popular and comes with homemade udon noodles and various small side dishes made with fresh vegetables. A greengrocer operates right next door, and accordingly the cafe's fresh vegetable juices are also recommended. The second floor is used as a gallery."

Review

  • 昔の銭湯を改装したカフェでうどんを食べる!
    4.0 Reviewed:2019.04.04
    “うどん”や“ちゃんぽん”のお店。昔、銭湯だった建物を利用してギャラリーカフェに。湯船や蛇口、鏡など、当時のままの姿が味わい深い空間。

    入り口のところは普通のフローリングでテーブル席が並んでいますが、その奥のお風呂だったところはタイル張りです。銭湯の中にテーブルと椅子を置き、銭湯の中に足をいれる感じになります。アイスコーヒーを注文。お膳にフルーツ、お菓子と一緒にコーヒーが運ばれてきてオシャレです。2階もあり壁沿いに展示もされていました。平日だったからか人も少なく落ち着けてよかったです。
