We stopped at this cafe for an afternoon Japanese dessert while walking in the Arashiyama area - amazing! Cute cafe with friendly staff. No English, but the menu has photos so we just pointed to what we wanted. The bathroom is Japanese style, so not the most convenient, but neat and clean.

We visited some temples at the hilly side of Arashimaya and walked down the hill slowly enjoying the atmosphere. We saw this nice cafe / restaurant, Komichi, as we wandered our way towards the busy end of Arashimaya. We went in and ordered some desserts. The cafe was an excellent place to rest our tired feet. The hospitality was first... More

Stopped by this place after Gio-Ji on the way to the Bamboo grove. Very authentic with great hospitality. However no one spoke English and the menu only featured Japanese and pictures. However, every dish had a picture so you could still order easily.

This is place well-situated but removed enough from the main tourist area that it is a welcome break during a long day of temple-hopping in Arashiyama. Known as a tea house, they also serve up simple noodle dishes and set menus at very good prices. It is cool and refreshing in the muggy heat, and the meals are delicious and... More

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.
