I’ll tack on my 24 h in Kyoto rather than start a new thread.
Soba set meal one night, at a spot recommended by my friend’s B&B hosts. I dunno, second time having soba in Japan, not counting the yakisoba at an Izakaya. I don’t like soba with broth.
We went to a fancy bar owned by a French guy, and I had a 1500 yen Shiso Sour. https://m.facebook.com/pages/category/Cocktail-Bar/LEscamoteur-1392735951033939/
Phone needed charging, so no photos. The French owner uses smoke and flames to add wow to cocktails. Mostly a white hipster crowd in their 20s and 30s. Including some Texans the night we were there. A rude French waitress wouldn’t let me sit down at the bar, then gave the pair of seats to some Francophones. The Irish bartender was friendly.
For breakfast, my hotel, Enso Ango Fuya 2 offered a Japanese breakfast as an option.
Ramen for lunch at Engine Ramen during a walking tour. One woman in our group has celiac disease, and this place has 2 kinds of non wheat noodles, as well as wheat noodles. I tried the spicy ramen, since I haven’t tried a spicy version before. It was ok, but I would have chosen another type of lunch if it was up to me.
Melonpan after ramen. Our tour guide loves these buns.
Unir Cappuccino, our tour guide’s favorite place for coffee.
Pastries I bought near a Temple
My dinner from 7 11, at the train station. I caught the train back to Tokyo. This meal cost around 838 yen (less than 10 USD).
