Information about the concept behind INODA COFFEE and company information.
We don’t think that we can give our very best service to our customers just by following manuals because each customer is unique. We think we can offer our “Omotenashi” (warm hospitality) only by meeting each customer’s needs. We are training our staff to, not think what they should not do, but what they would like to be done to them. This is because we don’t think that we can extend our “Omotenashi” unless we ourselves are cheerful, pleasant and full of energy with charming smiles. We would like to actively try new things while keeping traditions close to our hearts. We would like to continue to take pride in our role as a leader of Kyoto culture.
