One of the most beautiful views in one of the most secret Kyoto cafes.

At the top of the Yoshida hill east of Kyoto, Mo-An cafe is on the first floor of a traditional wooden house. And it gives new meaning to afternoon tea. A treasure not easily accessible, it can only be accessed after a pleasant walk in the heart of a forest sanctuary. Very popular with walkers, this tea room opens to a view of Mount Daimonji to the east and a Kyoto panorama to the west. On the weekends, however, coffee and tea lose their charm because of the long wait required. One Saturday a month, a tea ceremony is held and is possible to attend after reserving for only a thousand yen. An island lost in the middle of a forest, Mo-An cafe provides panoramic photographs for memories of Kyoto and its surroundings.
