Yojiya Cafe Gion Branchよ-じやカフェ 祇園店


This café selling old-fashioned oil blotting paper is a five minute walk from Keihan Gion Shijo Station. While relaxing leisurely in the nostalgic atmosphere, you can enjoy the original menu focused on ‘Japanese-style.’ Special dishes limited to the Gion store are the special hot cakes with cute logos and warabi mochi (bracken-starch dumpling) finished with refined Japanese sugar. The lunch menu is large and offers dishes such as Kyoto pickles and tartar sauce sandwiches. In a corner of the café are stationery items such as ballpoint pens and original goods which make great souvenirs.

Reviewed:2018/10/14 Too pretty to eat!
The drinks are too pretty too drink :) The cosmetic shop is right across. Give it a go while you’re in the area. Otherwise, there’s a bigger cafe ih the Kiyomizudera area.

          Kyoto Main Areas


          Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
