Have a hot pot dish in Kyoto in winter ① Enjoy "Salted Welsh onion Lemon Pot dish" in a hidden place with a view of Kamogawa River
Because a cold wind called "Hiei-oroshi" blows, Kyoto in Winter is chilled to the bone.If your body gets cold due to sightseeing or outing, please warm it up by eating a special pot dish.When I was walking around Kamogawa River, I found a Izakaya named "Nouka Yasai Futagoya Pontocho" like a hidden place.This restaurant serves exquisite dishes using vegetables delivered from a farm in Kyoto!Why don't you have a drink around "Negi Shio Lemon Nabe (Salted Welsh onion Lemon Pot dish)" on a cold night?The healthy hot pot that you can enjoy with a Welsh onion salt sauce on top of the Japanese dashi base is very popular with women!Refreshing flavor of lemon and spice of green onion and salt make you addicted to it.Nouka Yasai Futagoya Pontocho133 -1, Hashishita-cho, Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto 2F Emerald Kaikan3 minute walk from Keihan Sanjo Station
"Kabuki-dango" is a dumpling that I want to enjoy in Shiwasu (December) in Kyoto
In late November, a signboard "Maneki" with the names of the Kabuki actors appeared in front of the "Minamiza theatre"."THE FESTIVE KAOMISE PRODUCTION" featuring popular actors from the east and west, has also started.The mood at the end of the year in Kyoto has suddenly risen!When I think of Kabuki, I think of "Kabuki-dango (dumpling)".The color combination of brown, white and green makes this dumpling look like the curtain of Kabuki.You will be able to find it at "Fukueido" near "Minamiza theatre" and popular "Futaba Demachi" with their famous Mame-mochi.It is sold regardless of the season, but it is a dango (dumpling) that you want to enjoy along with the features of Shiwasu (December) in Kyoto.
A little-known spot with a view of the streets of Kyoto ② Enjoy the change of seasons from the retro Ferris wheel at Kyoto City Zoo
The Kyoto Okazaki area is impressive for the vermilion large torii gate of Heian-jingu Shrine.It is also known as one of the best cultural zones in Kyoto with many museums.Among them, "Kyoto City Zoo" has long been loved as a place of recreation and relaxation by citizens.It was opened in 1903 and is the 2nd oldest zoo in Japan.Do you know that the small Ferris wheel in this zoo is a view spot where you can see Okazaki area?A journey of prospect of 1 lap about 2 minutes and 50 seconds by a retro gondola in pastel colors!It is fun to look for famous places such as the Sanmon gate of Nanzenji which is towering with Higashiyama as its background or Kyoto Tower in the distance.Kyoto City ZooOkazaki Park, Hoshoji-cho, Okazaki, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto City2 minutes walk from the city bus stop Okazaki-koen ZooHere is for A little-known spot with a view of the streets of Kyoto ① Enjoy the night view with "Kyoto Station building air route"!
A little-known spot with a view of the streets of Kyoto ① Enjoy the night view with "Kyoto Station building air route"!
Today in Kyoto, the sun sets early and it is completely dark after 17 o'clock.Therefore, it is also a season to enjoy beautiful night view for a long time.This time, we will introduce the Kyoto Station Building, which is a gateway to Kyoto and is crowded with people.The 185 meter promenade in there is a great spot for night view.The view of the town from the gap of the complicated steel frame is perfect for the finale of Kyoto sightseeing!You can see the illuminated Kyoto Tower up close.It's nice to have a free night view spot in a location directly connected to Kyoto Station.Why don't you stop by before taking the Shinkansen?
Look, buy and taste the autumn leaves in Kyoto ③ Go to "Yoshida Sanso Cafe Shinkokan" where you can enjoy the autumn leaves view
During the autumn leaves season, the cafe time is also exciting!Why don't you take a break at a cafe where you can enjoy the special view of autumn leaves?My favorite is "Yoshida Sanso" which is near the Shinnyo-do Temple, a famous place for autumn leaves.The tea salon established here has special seats on the second floor.It is a perfect location where you can see Mt. Hiei and Mt. Daimonji by windows on three sides of the floor!Let's have coffee and chocolate cake while being surrounded by autumn scenery.Yoshida Sanso Cafe Shinkokan59-1, Yoshida Shimooji-cho, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto City10 minutes walk from the city bus stop, Ginkaku-ji Temple.Here is for Look, buy and taste the autumn leaves in Kyoto ① Jo-Namagashi of "Nijo Wakasaya Teramachi"Here is for Look, buy and taste the autumn leaves in Kyoto ② Autumn leaves pattern Tenugui (Japanese hand towel) from "Eirakuya Hosotsuji Ihei Shoten"
Have a tea time with plenty of Apples at "Pomme" along "Tesugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)"
If you take a walk along "Tesugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)", why don't you stop at a cafe with a bright red apple sign?A cafe "Pomme" along "Tesugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)" where you can enjoy handmade apple sweets.I'm relieved by the mild taste of apple cake which is the signature dish.It's cute that the wooden container with apple cake is shaped like an apple!If you enjoy it as an original apple tea made by squeezing an apple into a circle, you will be able to dye your body and mind to an apple color.Pomme144 Jodoji Shimonanda-cho, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto City10 minute walk from the Kinrin Shako bus stop.Here is for Wanting to walk in the autumn when you are lost in thought "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)".
Wanting to walk in the autumn when you are lost in thought "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)"
Kyoto is dotted with scenic spots and little-known spots for autumn leaves.I introduce the spot where you can enjoy autumn leaves without worrying about the opening time.For example, how about "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)" which is close to Nanzen-ji Temple and Eikan-do Temple?It is a walking path of about 2km that originated from the time when the philosopher Kitaro Nishida walked while indulging in his thoughts.Let's walking slowly from Ginkakuji Temple in the north to Kumano Nyakuoji Shrine in the south as if you were a philosopher.The color of the leaves differs depending on where you see it.And the scattered maple leaves on the walking path and the canal are full of elegance!There is no time limit, but I recommend early morning when the air is clear and less popular.
Information on autumn leaves in Kyoto ② Walk the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)", to go out for a Special Release of "Wachuan"
During the season of autumn leaves in Kyoto, you can enjoy special exhibitions of temples, shrines and cultural facilities and light up.Near the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)", my favorite "Wachuan" is usually a closed spot.It is an educational facility on the site of Notre Dame Jogakuin Junior and Senior High School, and it is open to the public only in spring and autumn.The residence was originally built by Fujii Hikoshiro, a wealthy merchant from Omi City, Shiga Prefecture, in the early Showa period, a blend of Japanese and Western styles.Mr. Fujii's sumptuous and stylish mansion was later handed over to the School Sisters of Notre Dame.For example, the chandelier was replaced by a fluorescent lamp.The history of being used as a humble monastery is also interesting!"Wachuan" will be on special display from November 22 to December 8.How about walking the "Tetsugaku no michi (The Philosopher's Path)" and go out for a Special Release of "Wachuan"?Notre Dame Jogakuin Junior and Senior High School Wachuan110 Sakuradani-cho, Shishigatani, Sakyo Ward, Kyoto City8 minutes walk from Miyanomae-cho bus stop or 10 minutes walk from Shinnyodo-mae bus stopHere is for Information on autumn leaves in Kyoto ① Kyoto's most popular Kiyomizu-dera Temple
