Riverside Adventure

The temples and shrines at Ohara are well worth the trek outside of Kyoto, but where to eat while you are there? Ohara Riverside Cafe Kirin is a good choice. If no one in your party is fluent in Japanese, I’d recommend bringing along a card that explains your dietary needs. Once they understood what we were asking for, staff was very kind, supportive and helpful. And the food was absolutely delicious! A real taste of Japanese home style cuisine. Fresh, simple, bringing out the natural flavors of fresh vegetables straight from the farm.

Pros: Comfortable, rustic space with a nice atmosphere., Fresh local produce prepared simply. , Friendly and helpful staff.

Cons: Menu is in Japanese. , Staff don’t speak much English. , Vegan vs. non-vegan items are not clearly marked.
