Story & Recommendation
Have a rest surrounded by nature in Kyoto’s Takao area at the tea house, Togano Chaya
This restaurant is in a calm spot right in front of Kosan-ji Temple in Takao. They serve such food items as soba and udon noodles, but they also have sweets and drinks, such as their kuzumochi, mochi cakes made from kuzuzo, served with kuromitsu syrup. The restaurant is encircled by green leaves, and the beauty of it all is of such grandeur that you’re not going to forget the experience for the rest of your life. The restaurant is right next to the Kiyotaki River, so you can enjoy the cool river winds. You can forget about the hotness of the city center, and enjoy a relaxed and leisurely moment. I recommend going to see the temples in Takao first, and then taking a break at Togano Chaya. It’s easy to relax here because the owner-chef of this restaurant does everything he can to make this kawadoko riverside experience as nice as possible for you. It almost feels as if time went by a bit slower at Togano Chaya than in the outside world.
