Toh no shita opened in June 9th, 2015 in the popular Kiyomizu area of Kyoto. Their opening day, 6/9 also pronounced as 6 (ro) 9(ku), is often referred to as “rock day”. As musicians, the owners bring music influences to the café with their collection of records from all over the world playing in the background through an antique English stereo.
Another unique part of this café is the availability to choose your own cup from a wonderful collection of Scandinavian tableware that are also displayed for sale. Although this service is not available during busy lunch times, the experience of drinking out of your favorite cup is a real treat.
