Have you read my previous Japan posts? You can find them all here.
Day 8 was the day we were leaving Kyoto to head to Tokyo, where we would spend 10 days. Looking back now, I really wish we had stayed in Kyoto longer. There’s so much to do there and I feel like we did nowhere near as much as we had hoped. I’m definitely going to visit Kyoto again soon.
The house we were staying at in Kyoto had a check out time of 10am, so we woke up early, tidied up and headed out to get breakfast. At the bottom of the street we were staying in, was a small cafe, called Cafe de Whoje, which we visited a few times whilst in Kyoto. As soon as you walk into the place, you are greeted by the owners, a very friendly husband and wife, who made us feel really welcome. The decor is very homely and there were vintage cameras all around, which I loved (I actually collect cameras).
The menu included a range of different set meals for breakfast. The previous morning, I had the smallest set meal; a boiled egg, thick white toast with butter (the eggs and bread in Japan are so tasty!) and an iced tea, but this time the lady who owned the cafe came out to show off the cakes she had made, so I decided to get a big slab of cake and an iced tea for breakfast. My parents and Matt had the large set meal, consisting of eggs, toast, mashed potato, and salad. A bit of a weird combination, but they enjoyed it.
