On Gokomachi Dori, just a little north of Oike Dori and just removed from the hubbub of the city, is a little corner of peace-of-mind: the ambient cafe Mole. The entrance is wreathed in greenery and looks for all the world like a flower shop. Enter and be greeted by the sound of chimes. Everything here; the plants, the decor, the music and the softly spoken staff, all are gentle on the eye and ear.

As I wrote above, Mole is on Gokomachi, just a little north of Oike, on your right. Look out for a mass of green. There is a map on this page if you get lost.
