Enjoyed Japanese old house with tea.

The second day, we got out of our hotel late and got on the bus for Higashi Chaya district.

There’re seats on the ground floor and upstairs. But there was no people on the ground floor. We went upstairs, too.
There’s steep staircase and we went upstairs carefully.

The house is traditional Japanese old house. Cozy 🙂
We don’t need to take off our shoes.

We can find “Today’s fresh Japanese sweets” at the entrance.
Though they didn’t ask anything, we might be able to chose one from these confections.

I ordered matcha with fresh Japanese sweets (抹茶+上生菓子付き, 850 yen).
Ah, I know this bowl ! I had it though mine was already broken !

The matcha wasn’t too bitter and rather weak. It’s good for people who like matcha taste confections, but don’t like real strong matcha.
It might be not good for people who love real strong matcha :p

Of course, the wagashi was good. It wasn’t too sweet ! I love it.
This wagashi is named “Otafuku”. Woman’s face 🙂

His cappucchino(カプチーノ, 580 yen) was good, too.

Because there weren’t many people, the staffs left people on the second floor after taking order and serving foods and drinks. Water jug was at the table, so we could relax for a long time in the cozy room 🙂

By the way, I used the restroom at the cafe. It was outside the house ! It’s too cold ! I didn’t wear coat !

Many Japanese old houses have restroom outside…
