To commemorate the release and their appearance as a café in Shin Kyoto, MUNE Coffee will also be running a giveaway of their original dark roast blend.

The Future of Atmoph
Atmoph is looking to create a new interface for the family via the window of the future. This window will invoke a sense of freedom, make valuable connections between its users, show a multitude of people the same view all at once, give users the ability to see all over the world in real time via live streaming, and so much more. Through these built-in features, everyone can share the same View at the same time.
Through Atmoph Studios, Atmoph is developing original CG worlds, not only giving users new experiences, but syncing the real and virtual worlds together, even allowing users to engage in these free and open spaces. And at the same time, by maintaining our core values to provide our users with views from all over the world that make you think “I’d like to go there”, we’re stoking their adventurous spirits and their yearning to journey to places they have not yet been able to know for themselves.
