Visiting Book Gallery Cafe “Gallery SATSU” at the Chidori-ga-fuchi Green Way

Looking at the beautiful nature while enjoying a cup of hot tea. Is there a more classic and pleasant way of spending time? If you are looking for a retreat in the middle of the buzzing city, “Gallery SATSU” facing Chidori-ga-fuchi Green Way is the place to go!

It was a gloomy and rainy day when I visited “Gallery SATSU”. I sat at a counter table where a large window faces the famous cherry trees of Chidori-ga-fuchi and sipped an aromatic herbal tea. Watching the people outside walking by in the rain was surprisingly relaxing.

In Tokyo, it is very rare to find a cafe like this where you can enjoy nature like this – even if it’s through a window.
The gallery belongs to a company that also has a beautiful art retreat with a fantastic garden outside of Tokyo.

“Gallery SATSU” displays and sells the works of craft artists from Japan and overseas. You should walk around the gallery and take a closer look at various works that are displayed on uniquely shaped bookshelves, or read art-related books which you also find on the shelves along the wall.

“Gallery SATSU” is a relaxing place with a great mixture of art, books, tea and of course the beautiful nature in front of you. Springtime is an especially beautiful time to visit the gallery since the cherry trees are in full bloom just outside the windows, but I assure you, this cafe and gallery is always a wonderful place to visit regardless of the season!

These cute birds were on sale when I visited the cafe.
