Owner and barista, Shimoji-san, runs this cute and poky coffee stand, but the coffee is anything but cute. He is very serious about his coffee, and his bean roasting process is done right inside the shop. Expect lattes, drip coffee, and all the usual culprits (chai also available for non-caffeine drinkers).

For 30 years, Toshin has been providing Nishi-Shinjuku locals with their fruit and vegetables. Originally in a different nearby location, they moved several years ago to attract more on-foot traffic. A great selection of cheap produce – “normal” fare as well as more unusual Japanese super seasonal items.
