Iyemon Cafe Karasuma Sanjo

Tea and Fusion Cusine in the business hub of Kyoto

By Bonson Lam    - 1 min read

The Iyemon Cafe blends the peaceful aura of wabi sabi with modern minimalist chic popular with the latest generation of designers and twenty somethings in the heart of Kyoto's business district. Whether sipping afternoon tea with a garden view or people watching over an alfresco supper, the cafe specializes in Japanese tea and traditional sweet made with azuki red beans and mochi. There are also a selection of European influenced desserts too, served with Japanese sensibilities.

It is just 3 minutes walk from exit 6 of Karasuma Oike subway station, where the 2 subway lines of Kyoto meet up.

I knew my future was destined to be with Japan the moment I flew from Sydney to experience the atmospheric lane ways of Kyoto last century. From the skies above Sapporo to the old charm of Naha's alleyways, I have been enchanted by the beauty and variety on every island. I am humbled to have met many distinguished people in my role as Regional Partner, especially the national living treasures of Japan, such as the doll maker to the Imperial Family. From sushi cooking classes to Ninja training grounds I welcome your ideas on what you like from JapanTravel.com. Please visit us in Kyoto or Osaka and have some green tea or sake with us.
