Soothing Herb Tea Cafe Tomomika

Cafe Spotlight: School & Cafe Tomomika スクール&カフェ友実家

A lovely little cafe/shop/school that just opened on October 21, 2015, Tomomika is a great place to enjoy a leisurely chat with friends or to unwind with a cup of hot tea and a book.

The cafe specializes in herbs, offering herb-based lunches and herbal teas, as well as other teas and Japanese sweets. In good weather, pet owners can make use of the outdoor terrace seating to enjoy tea time while keeping an eye on their pet(s).

The shop sells loose-leaf and bagged natural and organic teas, as well as aromatherapy-related items, soap-making kits, handmade crafts and local products,  etc.

Tomomika also offers various classes such as crafting and aromatherapy.
