I discovered this place by chance after walking down an alternative pathway from the Inari shrines and was very impressed! One of the rare places in Japan that offer hot chocolate - and also had amazing coffee. What also was surprising was their brunch menu......More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
