Diego by the River

Ichiro Katami of Kata Inc. – one of the masterminds whose designs ignited the café boom in Tokyo – has completed his latest project. What can only be an homage to the great Mexican painter Diego Rivera, Diego by the River (Google Map) opened in Enoshima on May 1st.

It’s situated at the mouth of Sagami Bay and overlooks the water, as well as Enoshima. Bring your doggy because the stylish café has a pet-friendly terrace.

Love the design. Very welcoming without being muddled or hokey. And the font of the sign makes me happy (not to mention the Rivera reference ;)

Love that place, just a little correction Diego Rivera was Mexican not Spanish.
