One of the bars that you will find in Nanairo is Cafe Bar Wreck, where the patrons have remodeled a shipwreck into a bar and antique shop. Have a drink with the bartender who is a mermaid!

Utilizing the excellent paper and bookbinding skills of LIFE, the Kyupodo brand describes themselves as being “a little strange” and offers a more whimsical take on quality stationery. What started as a post-retirement hobby to transcribe his autobiography and travel journals with letterpress printing turned into a successful letterpress print shop for founder Katsuro Sakai. Today, his grandson Souhei Sakai runs Kyupodo and enjoys incorporating fantasies and story telling into each of these unique stationery items.
