We rode our bikes up the hill and found this little gem! A great atmosphere and the food was amazing... The owner was so friendly and welcoming, we could have spent all afternoon up there.

We had a lovely lunch at Yosimi's caffee, a 5 min bike ride from the center if Takayama. The view is amazing and the hospitality lovely. Very very recommended if you'd like to take a little brake from the Takayama main tourist attractions. Andy&Liran

My sister and I found this cafe on trip advisor, and thought we'd give it a shot even though its well removed from the centre of town. We were pleasantly surprised. The friendly lady speaks quite good English, both our meals were of amazing quality - doria with curry sauce and ichiiburger - and our Iced Vienna coffees were delicious.... More

When we are walking around Takayama, we ended up top of the Kitayama Park. It was snowing so we decided to have a nice drink at Ichii. The owner was very friendly lady who is learning English. Surprisingly the cafe food was very high standard. It was nice surprise for us. Unfortunately the toilet is Japanese style and not so... More
