Café & Shop Kaonカフェ・ショップ鹿音


A café and museum shop in the Kasugatasisha Museum in Kasugano Town, Nara City, Nara Prefecture. Here you can buy original snacks, merchandise, and illustrated books relating to the history and traditions of Kasugataisha shrine. The café space has clean, minimalist look modeled after the Kasugayama Primeval Forest. The café space’s tables, made with wood from thousand year old Japanese cedars growing on Mt. Kasuga, hint at the skills of the traditional shrine carpenters who crafted them. Based on the concept of “eternal nourishment,” the café serves items made with naturally-derived, Nara-grown ingredients with a focus on Japanese café staples such as anmitsu bean jam in syrup, matcha green tea, and pancakes. Takeout available.

I think there were rice crispy bits in the ice cream but Im not sure. Whatever it was my friends and I went went back for thirds. Kaons free WiFi in the park was also very convenient.

          Nara Main Areas


          With a reputation almost as stellar as that of Kyoto, Nara is a must-visit for those searching for the remains of “traditional Japan.” The largely green Nara city holds the majority of the prefecture’s treasures, such as the iconic Todai-ji Temple, in which a 15-meter tall Great Buddha sits, and Nara Park, where deer flock to befriend passersby. While mountains are by no means hard to come by in this area, for hiking with a reward, head to the Kii Mountains’ Yoshino district in spring, when the hillsides put on an impressive display of white and pink cherry blossoms.
