  • Anytime is a good time to stroll this area. I found that for myself, this area becomes more enchanting when the sun is setting and the lanterns are lit and you can gaze inside the teahouse/bar...  more »
  • Still retains the traditional Kyoto houses, with lesser tourists than Hanamikoji. Great for Sakura and good dining options.  more »

  • He does Flat Whites and they are spot on! The owner really knows how to make a quality coffee and is so friendly and precise with how he makes and presents his coffee. It's only a tiny shop so make sure you keep a keen eye out for it. I paid 650 yen for my Flat White and it was worth every bit. If you're a coffee lover looking for a proper coffee in Kyoto then this is a must!
  • This has got to be the best espresso in Kyoto. We chanced upon this on our way to Gion. They were serving beans from Rwanda, and it was so good, so flavourful. Two days later, we decided we would walk 20 mins to go there just for their coffee. Awesome job, and awesome coffee, ZEF team!
