Another one bites the dust..

Sad news; Hakuraku 10×10 cafe & bar closed down last year. I only found out yesterday while taking an afternoon stroll around Hakuraku, then heading over for a coffee after lunch. I was shocked to see a sign for a ‘Snack’ bar had replaced the 10×10 one. The master at neighboring Cafe Doudou told me Takeyama-san retired to take care of her grandchildren while the parents worked. What a can two little brats be more important than running a great jazz cafe?? 🙁
