"Drip Bag Coffee" for A Quick Cup of Coffee - JAPAN CRAZE Magazine vol.18 -

Winter has arrived in Japan in full swing.

There are many winter illuminations and light-up events across Japan, and one of the best things to do in Japan during winter is to see winter illuminations. You can see most of the winter illuminations for free!

Winter in Japan is very cold, and it snows a lot in some areas. You can find some beautiful snow scenes in the countryside.

We Japanese love hot springs, or onsen. Japan has many amazing hot spring resorts. Not only winter, hot springs are popular all year round but soaking in hot spring water on a cold winter day is superb.

By the way, when the weather turns cold, we crave a hot beverage, don't we?
Cafes with a relaxing atmosphere line the streets, where you can easily enjoy a freshly prepared drink.

Coffee carefully brewed by hand drip

There are many different tastes and preferences, and among them, let me introduce coffee.

Coffee was introduced to Japan in the 1640s as a drink brought by the Dutch.

The Japanese actively adopted different cultures and established Japan's original coffee culture.
These include Japanese-style coffee shops, canned coffee, iced coffee, and drip bag coffee.
