Hidden down a side street in Tokyo, café Funiculi Funicula boasts  many things; good coffee, good conversation, a friendly cast of regulars. But the café also offers its customers a unique  experience, the chance  to travel in time.

There are rules you must stick to: you have to sit in the right seat, accept the coffee poured for you and finally most importantly, you must return to the present before the coffee gets cold.

Following on from Toshikazu Kawaguchi’s sensational debut, Before the Coffee Gets Cold, in Tales from the Café we meet; the man seeking the best friend whose daughter he raised as his own: the son who did not come home for his mother’s funeral; the lever who travelled to see the girl he couldn’t marry; and the aging detective who couldn’t save his own wife…

Beautifully told and brimming with warmth. Tales from the Café explores how we carry our past with us and how far we’d go to see-perhaps for one last time -the ones we love.
