Hara Donuts

3-27-2 Kitazawa Setagaya-ku, Tokyo, Japan
confirm location data is accurate?
A small donut chain originating from Kobe, Hara Donuts certainly does not have the feel of its more visible big-brand competition. The interior is tiny and bathed in soft whites, down to the well-worn white-washed plank floor.

As you enter, there is literally only standing room and a display case with eight or so varieties of donuts on offer. The type of donuts will differ each visit, but usually there will be old reliables such as cinnamon and sugar and brown sugar available. Donuts are of the plain cake variety, but are lighter and eggier than other shops. As the donuts are made in batches as they are required, to get the best product, it's best to avoid late in the afternoon as they approach closing time.

As there is literally, no place to sit, patrons are urged to enjoy their donut with a coffee from Bear Pond Espresso directly across the street, which fares only slightly better with extremely limited seating.


What is Bitmaps?

Bitmaps is a website designed to document noteworthy locations around the globe through a wiki-style format. The concept is to serve as an online guidebook that can be updated on-the-fly and whose goal is to share niche content by subject matter experts across different areas of interest. There is no rating system: every location that appears on the map is deemed worthwhile to visit by the contributor community - it could be end up being the highlight of your next trip or a hidden gem just around the corner.

As content updates are controlled in an open format, creation and editing of the data is limited to contributor members. All users, however, are able to browse the entire catalog of content, apply tags and upload images of locations and even create custom maps to which their own notes can be added and then shared.

How can I contribute?

The ability to create and edit content is limited to users with Contributor accounts, which will be provisioned through a referral system. Ability to contribute may be opened to all users in the future, however in order to control content quality for the time being, membership is currently closed.
