Cafe Tour Around Kyoto NO. 1


The Cafe Tour Aspiration
-- Sandra

A Café has been a place for artists and intellectuals to get caffeine-stimulated imaginations and ideas, a place for everyday people to get together to talk about everyday life. The Turks like to say, "The heart doesn't yearn for coffee or a coffee house. The heart yearns for friends, coffee is the excuse."
My intention to organize this Cafe Tour is not only to provide a chance for people to see different cafes around Kyoto, more importantly I hope to create these small communities for artists and an opportunity for them to meet others with the same interests, and thus inspire one another.

Our first cafe was held in Cafe Detective, the theme was photography. The cafe has mysterious design that brings customers to another world different from their own. Here, each of our participants had about 20 minutes of sharing session which they share their photo album, camera and experience with one another. I got to see Hasselblad 503 CW medium format single-lens reflex camera. And that was priceless. I hope that more artists can join this event in the future, let's inspire and get inspiration to help yourself and others to achieve their dreams!

Participant feedback:

"I had good time at cafe tour today! Thank you very much! It was really nice to talk about photography, which inspired me a lot. Also, it was great that I met new friend through photography. So hopefully we can get some more people who are into photography in the future cafe tour!"



Invitation detail:


A Café has been a place for artists and intellectuals to get caffeine-stimulated imaginations and ideas, a place for everyday people to get together to talk about everyday life. The Turks like to say, "The heart doesn't yearn for coffee or a coffee house. The heart yearns for friends, coffee is the excuse."

For that very reason, We Are One has decided to organize a Café Tour around Kyoto for similar-minded people who would like to share their interests and passions with one another. Kyoto itself, we believe, is an amazing art gallery full of artistic cafés.

Once every two weeks on a Saturday afternoon we will have a Café Tour with different themes. We would like to gather people with specific interests and talents to join. Each time we will organize a group of about 8 people to visit 3-4 cafés in a specific area in Kyoto.

Our first Café Tour around Kyoto will be held in the afternoon on 17th of July. The theme is photography. If you are an enthusiast of photography and would like to meet others with the same interest then you can come join at our first tour, as long as you can share your experience and some of your great photos with others. Both professionals and amateurs are welcome! Due to the number limit please register by email to We Are One, and briefly tell us your experience of photography. ^^

Email: we.are.one.japan@gmail.com
Location:Keihan Demachiyanagi Station
Time: 12:30pm
Theme: Photography
Vacancy: 8 participants including 2 organizers
(We are not looking for a massive number of participants each time, we are looking for people with passions in this field. ^^ Please email us to register.)

From there we’ll visit some of the cafés in that area. Including Boogallo Café, Weekenders, Café Detective, and Traveling Café Little Bamboo.

Hope to see you there!

P.S. If you have any specific hobbies or interests you would like to share with others through cafe tour, please email your ideas to us!
