In the freezing cold of Kyoto, why don't you think of the extremely cold Russia?
Russia is famous for its folk crafts such as matryoshka dolls and the character "Cheburashka".
The local dishes of Russia such as piroshki and borsch are also well known in Japan.
Warm yourself up with Russian home cooking surrounded by Russian goods at "Cafe Yozik" in Kitayama.
The shop's name "Jozik" means hedgehog in Russian.
As the name suggests, there are many dishes and miscellaneous goods with hedgehog motifs in the store.
Just looking at the sundries displayed by the window, I'm excited that I can enjoy the feeling of Russia.
"Russian tea" is a Russian-style tea which is made by scooping up jam with a teaspoon and putting it in your mouth.
Russia has a strong image of alcohol like vodka, but it has developed its own tea culture.
For lunch, I had "Russian Set" with borscht, piroshki, salad and drink of my choice.
During tea time, please enjoy "Russian Tea Set" which is eaten with Russian home-style sweets.
Of course there is vodka, so why don't you open the door on a cold night?
On this Christmas day, the take-out limited "Christmas box" is also sold in limited quantity and for a limited time.
It's nice to enjoy Russian Christmas at home this year.
