Itoshima Now

Wild Mart

Few places are more appropriately named! Built by hand by the owner Masato Yamakita and his friends ten years ago, the shop/cafe is located on a forested hillside overlooking farm fields. It’s a bit rustic and eclectic! Itoshima longtimers regularly drop by for a cup of his handmade siphon drip coffee and to chat with Yamakita. He’s one of the elders of Itoshima’s beach community, and he seems to know everyone. Yamakita’s originally designed clothes, silkscreen t-shirts, authentic denim, and parkas are quality long-life items that you can’t find elsewhere. Every nook and cranny is filled with vintage accessories and memorabilia; some are for sale, some just part of his collection. Coffee is just ¥500 and free for first-time visitors. Some English is spoken, but mostly he offers big smiles and friendly hospitality.
