The Little Teashop in Tokyo is a romantic comedy about Fiona, a photographer who wins an exposition and a mentoring trip to Japan.

Everything was perfect and exciting until she found out that her former teacher Gabe, a very famous photographer, was substituting her mentor.

Ten years ago, she misunderstood a few signs and ended up making a fool of herself, so now she was determined to keep her distance. 

It is a sweet and romantic story of letting go of the past and embracing what life has to offer in the present.

There is an OW (Other Woman), but Gabe does not cheat. He is just taking his time getting over her. His heart is healing from the heartbreak, but very slowly (lol). 

This book is like taking a little trip to Japan. The heroine stays with a lovely Japanese family that introduces her and the reader to several local costumes old and new.

The family owns a teashop, and there are descriptions of tea ceremonies, beautiful gardens, and other touristic spots, including Mount Fuji. 

In times of COVID, a little trip, even if only imaginary, was a considerable respite.

I recommend this book to everyone in need of escapism and light romance.

Disclosure: I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review

      1. No, I only visited for a week but it was a wonderful experience and I wish I can stay there longer. It was one of the countries you will keep going back to, in my opinion. Hihi 😅

  1. Nice review! Could definitely use a little escape through reading. I’ve always wanted to travel to Japan. Was looking forward to the Olympics this year happening in Tokyo… safety first though!

      1. haha that is the closest I have been to visiting Japan as well. I LOVE Disney. I went to Epcot for the first time about two years ago and really enjoyed it. Would love to go again. I was a little disappointed with my choice of food I got in the Japan World Showcase. There is a wonderful Japanese supermarket in NJ called Mitsuwa which is fantastic. They have a wonderful food court as well! Depending on work schedule I will have to figure it out again. Keeping my hopes up!
