This is from Cafe Jojo, in Namba, Osaka, a place that I first went to with Mads from Lovegeek last year. She was overjoyed to discover they had soy milk and I was overjoyed to discover they made Totoro coffees. Last week Charlotte and I tried the Panda and the Totoro, while flicking through a mag that talked about a popular new topic in Japanese society – the rise of men who are ‘herbivores’ (skinny, not manly, more interested in earning ‘points’ on shops’ points cards than earning lots of money) vs men who are ‘carnivores’.



I’m not sure which was cuter, these coffees or the bear and bunny coffees from Enjoy cafe.

    I constantly spent my half an hour to read this weblog’s articles everyday along
    with a cup of coffee.
