Most of the people consider Tokyo to be a frenetic, hyperactive agglomeration of buildings, lights and people. This is true. And is wrong.

Tokyo has some of the best oasis of peace and relax, where you can just sit and enjoy the beauty of a solitary cup of coffee while listening to your favorite lofi chill jazzhop radio. The best thing about this city is how much it can transform itself and become a totally different place just turning the corner. Here's a list of 5 of the most beautiful and charming cafes you can find in the busy center of the city.

1. Aoyama Flower Market

This is by far the most famous of the list. Aoyama Flower Market was originally a flower shop, perfectly adapted as a tea house. This cafe is so popular that you have to wait in line for hours before you can get in, specially on the weekend; but it worth the wait. The atmosphere is magical, it is like being teleported into a fairy tale and they have a lot of variety of tea!

Address: 107-6901 Tokyo, Minato, Akasaka, 5 Chome−3−1 Akasaka Biz Tower 1F

2. Kuriya Kashi Kurogi

Can you believe this cafe is part of a university campus? Kuriya Kashi Kurogi is located in the Hongo Campus of the University of Tokyo. The cafe is owned by Jun Kurogi, a Michelin-starred Japanese chef specialized in Japanese sweets. The place is designed by Kengo Kuma, an internationally acclaimed architect. Because of those two big names and the unique atmosphere, this cafe has become a well-known spot for relaxation in Japan.

Address: Tokyo 113-0033, 7 Chome-3-1 Hongo, Bunkyō

3. Les Grandes Arbres

"The big trees" in French. This cafe has has become famous in Japan due to the series "Dear Sister" . If you also watched this Japanese series, you probably already know this cafe. The first and second floors are a flower shop (like the Aoyama Flower Market Tea House) run by the same company, while the cafe is located at the third and fourth floors. You can even climb the stairs to get to the treehouse and enjoy the view!

Address: 106-0047 Tokyo, Minato, Minamiazabu, 5 Chome−15−11 3F

4. L'Occitane cafe Shibuya

L'Occitane is a French retailer of body, face, fragrances and home products. So why is this name showing up in a cafe list? The reason is because at the second and third floor of the beauty shop, located in one of the buildings of the Shibuya crossing, there is a cafe with one of the most suggestive view of the famous scramble crosswalk in Tokyo. The dessert selection is great as well as the teas they offer. If you are in Shibuya don't miss the chance to experience a moment of slowness in the fastest district of Tokyo.

5. Tenoha Daikanyama

Daikanyama is certainly the most hipster-chic district in Tokyo. We can easily imagine why the owner decided to open a cafe like Tenoha here. Because the management is well connected with Italian suppliers they can serve real espresso in Tokyo too and they recently opened a second branch in Milan.

We recommend you to grab a nice cup of cappuccino or ice coffee during summer or spring, this way you can sip on your drink in their beautiful garden, surrounded by trees and flowers.
