If you love chai, you’ll want to visit Chai Break, located a three-minute walk from Kichijoji Station by Inokashira Park.

Although a spice-infused milk tea is what probably comes to mind, the café offers traditional Indian-style chai, which simply refers to tea that is prepared by brewing the leaves in milk. There are several different types of chai available (from ¥486), including a basic milk tea, spice chai, and a chai frappé.

A food menu is also on hand, including homemade desserts such as a ginger milk pudding (¥491), and kulfi (¥432), a popular frozen dairy dessert from India.
