The Usaginonedoko cafe is based in Kyoto, Japan, and is based on a highly unique concept that is inspired by nature itself.

The space functions as a shop, cafe and lodge all at once. In its shop, visitors are able to find "natural artifacts and specimens" along with the brand's 'sola cubes' – which are cube-shaped resin decor items that contain plants or minerals. The Usaginonedoko cafe is next door and is also inspired by nature – focusing specifically on geology. The cafe does this by offering food products that are formulated and arranged in a way that makes them resemble rocks, minerals and other natural products.

The Usaginonedoko cafe functions as an experiential space that offers products unlike any other.
