About the People
Misses Orihara, Owner
The lovely Misses Orihara doesn`t speak English, but it doesn`t need much words to feel Japanese hospitality there. She greets all people with a smile on her face. And every morning she makes the Japanese confectionery by hand. The teahouse is by now a well kept secret spot.
