Cozy cozy cozy

Hi, how aye you doing ? It has become warmer and warmer and spring is almost there?
As it gets warmer, good to take a walk and have a rest at some point,

Let me introduce you one ideal flow to go.

Let's focus on "Tsutaya bookstore in Okazaki,Kyoto" (京都岡崎 蔦谷書店)
It is in the ROHM THEATRE , on the 1st floor and there are multi genre books are available.

                                                                                                                                                                                              You can see lots of attractive guidebooks featuring Kyoto and Japanese cultures along with some Japanese souvenirs.
  Let's move to 2nd floor. It is cafe ,restaurant or bar. They offer you meal, sweets and alcohol.     High ceiling , light and airy and very cozy. Suitable with your friends, colleagues and your loved one.
                                                                           Finally, let's take a look at 3rd floor and this is definitely my favorite place.                              It is so comfortable and cozy !  You can bring up coffee and indulge yourself in relaxing on the couch reading books :-)

  Thank you very much for reading all through.

Hi there!
If you would like to experience something traditional, making Japanese sweets is one of the options.

I have done it at Kanshundo which is located in Higashiyama area.
(near Sanjusangendo Temple, very close to Hokuku-jinja Shrine)

They have 3 classes every day and each class takes about 1 hour and 15 minutes.
The staffs speak a bit of English but no worry, they show you how to make it.

You can make 4 different types of Japanese sweets and you will have one of them with Matcha green tea at the end of the class.


Fee: 2160yen/person (including tax)
Classes: ①11:00~12:15  ②13:00~14:15  ③15:00~16:15
