The area
Address
Neighborhood: Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.

We had a rainy day in Kyoto and spend a few hours in cafe meeple.
If you like to play board games this is a perfect spot to spend a few hours. Most games are in English so easy to play.

They charge money for spending time there. I didn’t figure out how much exactly. We spend there a few hours, had two beers and a coffee each and payed 3600 yen.

We noticed this cafe as we passed through the market area of Kyoto one morning and decided to stop back tonight to check it out. There is a huge selection of board games, familiar and niche, and drinks and smoothies available as well. The guy working there was absolutely lovely and so helpful. He took the time to recommend us a few new games based on what we like and translated the rules from Japanese as well. We really enjoyed both of them. It was a lovely way to spend a few hours.
