How to Make the Perfect Cup of Italian Coffee

Unpacking the history, allure, and ways to use the humble Moka pot.

A long layover at Narita International doesn't have to be a drag. The Natoritei Restaurant—a 15-minute cab ride from the main terminal—offers a top-notch kaiseki-ryori menu, including dishes like simmered eggplant, fried tofu, pickles, sushi, and sashimi. Those with more time can explore the nearby Naritasan Shinshoji temple that dates back to A.D. 940 (Buddhist priests still perform daily chanting ceremonies there) and its pristinely manicured gardens. $ Lunch, $25. At 575 Teradai, Narita City.
