Coedo draft beer at Cafe Soul Tree

A few weekends ago we went to a new restaurant in Futako Tamagawa along the Tama River called Cafe Soul Tree. Styled after an old Route 66 garage, they have a BBQ outside on their deck, a very spacious concrete and vaulted ceiling decor and Coedo craft beer on tap (one of the few places in Tokyo that do).

Walking west from Futako Tamagawa station along the Tamagawa river’s verdant park belt reminds you that Tokyo isn’t all tarmac and high rises. In fact, this area is lush and green this time of year and if Japan observed Daylight Savings Time (SeeThe Last Word,” Metropolis #952) it would be swarming with people riding, running, walking or just generally hanging out in the evenings on summer nights.

The perfect time and place, then, to enjoy some cold beer, food, friends and lazy summer evenings at a relaxed joint that feels miles from the city. If you are out that way, definitely pop in and check it out. It’s about a ten-minute walk from the station.

Read the rest my review and find out how to get there on the Metropolis website.
