Como Es is a music cafe and bar that recently opened in Imaizumi. Inside the renovated 50-year-old house, shop manager Yosuku Nishida’s record collection of 20,000-plus LPs features prominently. There are counter seats next to the DJ booth, which pumps music from Electro-Voice and Klipsch speakers, and tables upstairs if you need more room to chill. During the daytime, you can enjoy Canezees donuts and hand-drip coffee roasted by Coffee County. At night, Nishida mans the DJ booth as the space transforms into a bar. Music events and various workshops are held periodically.
