Jazz Nutty opened in 2009 next to the campus of Waseda University. The wonderful Mr.& Mrs. Aoki ran their own flower shop for 26 years before deciding to open their own cafe. It’s a small narrow place dominated by two out of this world speakers; this is a cafe for some serious jazz listening and not idle conversation.
All the drinks, including beer, are 500 yen. Closed on Tuesdays. All rejoice! A new jazz cafe is born in Tokyo, let’s all spend some money there so it survives!
Station: Waseda – Toden Arakawa Streetcar
Distance from station: 2 minutes
It’s a bit far from Waseda station and you have to walk through the campus. Best way to get there is find the Toden Arakawa streetcar Waseda Station. Just past the streetcar station turn right off of Shin-Mejiro Dori towards the Waseda University campus. You’ll see Jazz Nutty on the left side of the street.
