Builder: Kitano Construction

 The former location where Matsumoto City Hall was built in 1959 as part of a redevelopment project following its relocation. The old confectionary store “Okinado”, founded in 1911, purchased the remaining site of less than 1,000 square meters, and opened the cafe “Okinado Tea House” for customers to enjoy while waiting, and it has been a place of relaxation for the citizens for about 60 years. It is said that a Taiwanese architect from Ginza was invited to create a high-quality space, and the original chandeliers and bracket lights were made with great attention to detail. The interior of the restaurant overlooks a Western-style tsuboniwa garden with a fountain, and the downward ceiling creates a relaxed atmosphere.

The second floor is used as a workshop to produce original coffee beans roasted in a unique way using Nagano apples for fermentation. Even after being taken over by the younger generation, it still retains the atmosphere of a store that has been loved by the locals for a long time.
