It's been a long, stressful day at work. To decompress, visit the Tokyo Cotton Village, a bar and restaurant in Tokyo. There, you can have a drink and spin cotton threads. Kunihiko Miura of The Japan News describes the experience:
“Getting absorbed in [spinning threads] lets me forget bad things that happened at work. This is a precious time for me to change my mood,” said Yoshiko Jimura, a 32-year-old company employee who visits the bar at least twice a week.
It's the brainchild of Takuya Tomizawa, who used to work in advertising. He and his friends spun cotton for fun. They realized that there was a business opportunity at hand. So they established the Tokyo Cotton Village, where patrons can grow, harvest, and spin cotton themselves while enjoying drinks and food.
