In a small back alley in Tokyo, there is a café which has been serving carefully brewed coffee for more than one hundred years. But this coffee shop offers its customers a unique experience: the chance to travel back in time . . .
From the author of Before the Coffee Gets Cold and Tales from the Cafe, comes another story of four new customers each of whom is hoping to take advantage of Cafe Funiculi Funicula’s time-travelling offer. Among some familiar faces from Kawaguchi’s previous novels, readers will also be introduced to:
A daughter who couldn’t say “You’re an idiot.”
A comedian who couldn’t ask “Are you happy?”
A younger sister who couldn’t say “Sorry.”
A young man who couldn’t say “I like you.”
With his signature heartwarming characters and immersive storytelling, Kawaguchi once again invites the reader to ask themselves: what would you change if you could travel back in time?
