We got a surprise visit from Masumi Kikuchi! He had this cafe space before we did. The restaurant was called “Non-No“, and featured the original “Kappa-chino“, traditional ramen and curry dishes, soft ice cream, and cold beer.


His famous Kappa-chino, as chronicled in this travel site.

And here are a couple of video clips, from when we visited Non-No last September.

Masumi-san went full Kappa that day. It was during the Tono Matsuri festival.


Here’s Chizuko and Masumi engaged in some shop talk.


Masumi is still a man of style, as you can see by his whimsical Peanuts sweater


It was a pleasure to welcome Masumi to Michael’s Cafe! I hope he visits again.
