Pico Pico Cafe is situated atop an 8-story building in Kichijoji, Tokyo and has won the heart of gamers and coffee lovers alike.
Joseph White and his wife, Natsuko White, created a warm abidance that greets you at the door. The decor appeals to gamers, as Rocketnews points out, by incorporating “subtle dashes of video game culture in every other nook and cranny.” I’m not a gamer myself, but the small details, like the miniature farmer placed in the soil of a planter and the dated video game consoles, are what wins me over. This is certainly a go-to spot if you’re ever in Tokyo, and a place that hopefully unearths around our own hometowns.
