Enjoy Japanese afternoon tea while you look at a beautiful Japanese garden at Yojiya Café Ginkakuji
Yojiya is a brand from Kyoto famous for their blotting paper and other cosmetics popular with both Japanese and foreign tourists alike. Besides their cosmetics, they have also opened a café with an authentic Japanese garden close to Ginkaku-ji Temple in eastern Kyoto. The café is close to the Philosopher’s Walk, and it’s in a traditional Japanese style house that has tatami mats on the floor. There is something nostalgic about the café, and you feel surrounded by interesting history when you sip your tea. Their most famous menu item has to be their matcha cappuccino that has their logo on it as latte art. They also have Kyoto-style traditional Japanese sweets, so this is a great place for some afternoon tea. They also sell souvenirs, so this is a great café to drop by when sightseeing around Ginkaku-ji Temple.
