Good coffee is not uncommon throughout Oita Prefecture, but Kotori offers one of the most sublime locations to relax in and savour a delicious brew. Kotori serves up a variety of home-roasted coffee in retro-rustic chic surroundings aside a beach lapped by the shimmering Seto Inland Sea. Other refreshments include freshly squeezed mikan mandarin orange juice, homemade ginger ale, English-style tea, and pastries - all of which are sourced from locals on the Kunisaki Peninsula including Mamenomonya. For an interesting and unusual memento of any visit Kotori has a side line in antiques.
