A roadside cafe made from an authentic British double-decker bus recently opened in Nagasaki Prefecture, becoming an Instagram-friendly hit among users of the photo-sharing app.

London Cafe, which opened in September in the Nagasaki town of Hasami, is housed in a bus originally manufactured in the 1960s and deployed in the British capital's public transit system. The remodeled interior has a light color scheme and retro furnishings to match the iconic red-and-white exterior.

"I wanted to create a local hangout," cafe owner Hiroshi Sakana said of his venture, located roughly 60 kilometers northeast of Nagasaki City.

Sakana, 55, purchased the bus after retiring in January from Japan'sGround Self-Defense Force. The tables, chairs and other furnishings for the interior were inspired by a cafe in Paris he visited on a trip to Europe which doubled as a chance to check out the continent's cafes and shops.

The response has been positive, especially among guests who like to share photos online. The cafe, open every day of the week except Monday, serves European-inspired fare including a specialty potato dish made with cheese imported from Italy.

"People are more than welcome to stop by just to take photos," Sakana said. "I want people to come right up without hesitation."
