Easy to find location, just mins walk from mrt station. Waiting time almost 1hour after we arrive 1pm. Cozy relaxing environment, very enjoyable meal. Love the matcha ramen, clear soup but rich in aroma and flavor!!! Must come when visit in Uji.

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
