Who would you meet if you could travel back in time?

“Before Your Memory Fades” (思い出が消えないうちに) from the heartwarming international bestseller “Before the Coffee Gets Cold” (コーヒーが冷めないうちに) series is now in our JFKL Library!

This is the third novel in the series and follows four new customers at Café Donna Donna on the hillside of Mt. Hakodate, Hokkaido, who undergo the extraordinary experience of traveling back in time in order to connect with someone important to them until their cup of coffee gets cold. They cannot change the present with this journey, but they choose to relive the memories they had locked up inside.

The heartwarming stories will catch the readers emotionally and invite them to ask themselves once again, “Who would you meet if you could travel back in time?”

“Before the Coffee Gets Cold” (Series 1) and “Tales from the Café” (Series 2) are also available in the library. Please drop by and check them out!

Our library is open to public, so please come by and feel the vibe of Japan! We are located at 18th floor, Northpoint Block B, Mid-Valley City, No. 1, Medan Syed Putra, 59200 Kuala Lumpur.
