This is a translation of the webnovel The Dutch Slope’s Western Cafe.
Title: The Dutch Slope’s Western Cafe (オランダ坂の洋館カフェ)
Author: Emoto Mashimesa [江本マシメサ]
Status: Complete (30 Chapters + 3 Extra Stories)
There was a cafe called the “Evening Rain” in a western-style building at the end of a narrow street on the Dutch Slope. On a rainy night, a university student who lost her way by chance met a strange shopkeeper.
A mysterious cafe with a strange attachment to evening rain, the “Evening Rain Cafe”……because of it, she got to learn about Nagasaki’s variety of traditional confectionery.
Eventually, she came to work at the shop, but the shopkeeper had an amazing secret.
A story of a sweet relationship connected by sweet confectionery begins here.
This webnovel was eventually adapted into a novella titled “The Western Cafe on the Dutch Slope, Nagasaki – Sugar Road and Secret Book”.
It can be found here.
The author also wrote the webnovel series “Hokuou Kizoku to Moukinzuma no Yukiguni Karigurashi”, which is fully translated by Kudarajin here.
That series was one of the main reasons I found this webnovel and decided to translate it, so shout-out to Kudarajin for his translation.
