AIZUWAKAMATSU | Aizu Ichibankan is a cafe with a lot of history. Located on the ground floor of what was once the Kaiyo Clinic, it’s where the famous Dr. Hideyo Noguchi (the guy on the ¥1,000 banknote since 2004) underwent surgery for his burnt hand. Noguchi went on to study at the clinic, before moving to Tokyo and becoming a doctor, at the age of 20. He then moved to the United States, and become best known for discovering the agent of syphilis as the cause of progressive paralytic disease in 1911.

Back to the cafe, however. Aizu Ichibankan is a cute cafe with a retro setting that’s well suited to the historical building. It’s a homely spot with lots of old furniture, nick knacks, and various belongings of Dr. Noguchi. The coffee and tea are tasty enough, and there are snacks and cakes available to enjoy. The second storey of the building is a museum, where visitors can learn more about Dr. Noguchi.
