Totally recommend the yuzu and orange tea, it was delicious. The rest of our party had one of the amazing desserts on offer, which they also loved. A little on the pricey side but a very clean cafe with good service.

OK, so the drink is a bit on the pricy side (I think it was about 8 AUD or so), but where else can you get a geisha face coffee?! Food is decent, and place is gorgeous. There are many locations around Kyoto area for this well known institution, but this one out in Arashiyama is apparently quite famous. We... More

A lovely cafe serving a wide variety of food, dessert and very cute cappucino, although the green tea cappucino was slightly too sweet. Visit the cosmetic shop right next to it, nice place to find souvenir.

The Yojiya Cafe was a decent find. After wandering through the bamboo groves, we were hungry. We spotted the famed Yojiya Cosmetics and noticed that they had a cafe adjacent to their store. So we decided to give it a shot. They have pretty decent pasta and brunch-style foods. Dessert was also pretty good.

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
