Old Kyoto Japan kissaten coffee shop's sign in katakana Japanese alphabetTry reading this sign if you’re learning katakana.

You’ll see lots of  signs touting this sort of coffee shop fare in Japan, but you’ll never see another sign quite like this funky old one that caught my eye recently in Kyoto.
The first word is spelled コーヒー these days,  but it’s not hard to understand what it means in either case, if you’re up on your katakana!
