Reviewed:2018/05/16 A quiet charming place in the middle of the primeval forest!
After strolling trough the Nara Mt. Kasuga primeval forest and enjoying the soft sun rays bouncing on the leaves we came across this tiny peaceful cafe. It was quite late and near closing time...

A student of mine recommended this place so I thought it must be pretty good if he was able to remember this place months after he went. While it was very clean and provided lots of good people...

          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.
