Totally unassuming from outside, I was drawn in by my magical intuitions. And for the second time, they hit the hammer dead right on the tip of the nail. Amazing coffee, super delicious snacks and the best ever service! Together with Monz Cafe in Fukagawa...More

Just steps from Fushimi entrance, felt like we’d fallen into heaven after hiking the mountain. Best coffee outside of ITALY (try the latte) and delicious, simple breakfast. Fantastic.

Small perfectly formed cafe a few minutes walk from Inari Train station is great for a coffee stop before or after visiting the Fushimi Inari Shrine. The cafe is actually named after the colour of the Torii Gates (Vermillion - the orange-red colour). Free wifi...More

Great place, friendly staff that speaks English. Had the best coffee is Japan here, “Black Long” if you like a good strong coffee. Double cheese toast are delicious , place is welcoming and relax atmosphere to enjoy a break before or after visiting Inari Shrine.

The Cappuccino did not live up to out exceptions - average and comparatively expensive. It is not a must however the staff is friendly.

Worth trekking slightly down the hill from the Shrine for excellent coffee and food from a Melbourne-trained barista. A cute little cafe which made a perfect rest stop after a day of cycling in Kyoto.

What a find! This a small cafe with great coffee (we are self proclaimed coffee snobs), friendly, hospitable service, cosy seating and yummy snacks. We had a couple of flat whites and food for the kids. There is a slight Australian influence here too with...More

Great stop off point after visiting the shrine. The coffee was good and the muffin and toast were both tasty. Slightly expensive, but I suppose that’s what you pay in a tourist area.

Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
