Living in Barcelona

Over the weekend at Akashi Gallery

On Saturday, Milos and I bundled up and went down to meet up with 2 friends at a small recently opened Japanese tea Gallery. It’s the only one of its kind here in Barcelona, and I felt like I had been transported back to Japan.

I was delighted with the first Onigiri I have had in Spain, and although quite small, it was delicious! I could have eaten about 20! We tried all sorts of tea, including genmachai, and I ordered a lovely sweet umeshu ( a kind of plum liqueur). Under a little lantern, next to their goldfish pond, we whiled away the time, and for a moment, I almost forgot I was in Barcelona.

The owners of the cafe, two professional photographers, who recently opened Akashi Gallery as a spot to exhibit their photos, some of which were taken on a trip that spanned the length of Japan. It´s the first time that they have ventured into the cafe business, and although they have a ways to go, their creative attention to detail shows in their personal touch and the lovely decor of the cafe.

I shall certainly be back!
