In the café there is an extensive range of picture books to peruse, from nostalgic books that many adults will have enjoyed when they were children to recent publications. Customers can also enjoy the surroundings as there are moveable walls that make the space more suitable for author exhibitions and such than before.

      Even the menu features items that weren’t available at their past location, such as fluffy pancakes and daily-changing meal options. Here you can really enjoy a leisurely time. In the neighborhood there are variety stores and other shops that have picture books, so about stopping by Mucchi’s when out on a stroll in the area?

      *When going to see the illumination, in order to prevent the spread of COVID-19 please follow necessary guidelines such as wearing a mask, keeping social distance of 1-2 meters apart, and refraining from going out altogether when you feel unwell.
