Those with a fond-
ness for cartoon-
character dolls and
action figures will
find a kindred spir-
it in Yoshitomo
Nara, whose paint-
ings and sculptures
of devilish children
are as disconcerting
as they are cute.

A joint project with
the Graf design
firm, A to Z Cafe,
with its original
artwork, mismatched
furniture, and lib-
eral use of worn
wood and corrugated
iron, is a cool
place to spend the
afternoon. Nara's
conceptual home on
the range provides
an interesting
contrast to the
fifth-floor view of
the teeming metropo-
lis outside.

The cafe offers
daily lunch specials
starting at Y800, in
addition to the
extensive menu of
wafu-inflected
dishes ranging in
price from Y315-
1000. Mentaiko nori
toast makes an un-
usual salty snack;
deep-fried baby
squid and crispy
rice cakes are al-
most too cute to
eat.

Choose from a selec-
tion of coffee
drinks or Chinese
and Japanese teas to
go with tempting
desserts like kabo-
cha and coconut
cake. Cocktails,
beer, shochu, and
champagne are also
available if you
fancy something
stronger. Drop in
for one of the free
artist lectures or
just sit around and
enjoy the atmos-
phere: the pretty
people drift in and
out as softly lilt-
ing ambient music
floats in the air.
