Respond to Review of Hiru Neko Cafe
Review: Very out of the way and truly hard to find unless you know where to look or can read the description of how to find it on the restaurant's website in Japanese. It's in an industrial-looking neighborhood about a half hour walk away from downtown Oita within the gates of a huge courtyard facility that appears to be a warehousing, commercial trading or shipping center. Find it among the shops hidden in a series of buildings along one side of the facility. You should ask someone in the facility for directions. The food is great and the staff are very friendly. Set meal changes on a daily basis. Serves brown rice and some raw food items. Funky south-east-Asian-influenced atmosphere. Very pleasant. A little English spoken. A bus line coming from Oita train station stops close enough to the restaurant to cut the walk from downtown to 10 minutes or less.
