VW Bus Mobile Coffee Shop for Tsunami Stricken Japan

Yoshi’s Blend from Mackenzie Sheppard on Vimeo.

Japan based filmmaker Mackenzie Sheppard documents Yoshi Masuda’s passion for coffee, Volkswagen vans, and a desire to help others. Basically he takes his mobile coffee shop on the road to tsunami hit areas to raise spirits and encourage people to set up small coffee shops of their own, in part to reestablish a sense of community. The old phonograph and classic 78s provide a curiosity, music soothes the soul. It’s tough enough to keep one of these vintage vehicles running, more so in Japan where planned obsolescence means buying a new car before the old one wears out. In fact there’s an active export of high quality good used Japanese cars worldwide.  Note, Yoshi’s bus is right hand drive.
