Retired Japanese Couple Turns Home Into a Bookshop and Cafe
Here's a lovey way to work from home. A retired Japanese couple has turned their amazing abode into a bookshop and a cafe. They sought help from the architects of Atelier Bow-Wow to design a home that will be open to the public. The store slash library is located at the Izu peninsula, hence the name Izu Book Cafe.
The concept is nothing new. Locally, there is a man who has this type of setting in his home sans the cafe part. He lets his neighbors borrow his books and have them returned whenever they feel like it. Some don't even return the books at all!
The natural wood beans that line the ceiling are amazing! It makes the whole place a place of serenity and comfort. There's almost like a spa-vibe appeal to this place. How lovely is it to be immersed in your favorite book here, right?
