Have you tried "fluffy" pancakes? Are you willing to miss out on one of the best pancakes experiences of your life? This artisanal cafe serves both sweet and savory pancakes, brunch dishes like eggs benedict, and more! I highly recommend the fruit and cream cheese topping pancakes, my favorite ever.

Teishoku restaurants serve set meals at great prices. Dishes typically include rice, soup, salad, main dish (meat or otherwise), pickled vegetables, served on smaller plates arranged on a tray. It's delicious, filling, and great for a budget. Additional plates can be ordered for cheap and free tea is served with your meal! English menus are available. Ootoya is slightly more upscale than other teishoku alternatives. I personally like the basil chicken salad!

Great restaurant/cafe for vegetarians and health conscious individuals. There is a lovely shop on the first floor and the restaurant is on the second floor. This venue has a variety of seating arrangements to choose from and a great woodsy theme.

Cheap conveyor belt sushi venue! Tip: To get the freshest fish, order most of your dishes from the english menu on the digital screen above your seat, and skip the free roaming dishes on the conveyor belt. I'm a huge fan of the avocado salmon and the roasted salmon mayo (which is raw salmon blazed on the surface with a flash of blowtorch flame), yum!

Sightseeing
Yasaka Shrine and Maruyama Park is a gorgeous area that, thanks to Shintoism, is open 24 hours. It's absolutely stunning to walk around -- if you go in the day expect to see lots of people in yukata and kimono. Wander around enough and you're sure to find some secret spots. If you go at night, except in April when there are evening picnics and festive celebration, you will find yourself alone in a beautiful, historical layout of small shrines, winding gardens, and a backdrop of mountains you can proceed to hike up if you wish. A highly memorable and photographic location, a must-see for anyone visiting Kyoto.

Walk amongst local monkeys wandering freely. In a refreshing reverse of the usual interaction, humans and enter a large cage from where they can safely feed the monkeys climbing around outside! A lot of fun, highly memorable.

The bamboo grove of Arashiyama is a beautiful and otherworldly trail to walk through. In the fall, the grove is lit with a nighttime illumination and is especially magical.

My favorite spot in Kyoto! Climb a mountain following a path lined with thousand of brightly painted Tori gates, purchased by others wishing for good fortune. This location is especially popular, and the truly adventurous might try their hand at hiking the trail at night! The Shinto shrine is open 24 hours, and in the evening is lit by a few lanterns. Though quite full in the day time, the path is completely empty at night -- great for a unique experience and photos.

Parks & Nature
The imperial palace is surrounded by open grounds including a park with many different "faces". Some areas are full of sprawling old trees, while others consist of well groomed gardens and walkways. The park is ideal for a long stroll on a sunny day, and entrance to the imperial palace requires a reservation -- they have English speaking staff to assist with making these over the phone.

See information on the Yasaka Shrine tag (the map icon pin just west of this pin). In April and during festivals, which are commonly held here, there is live music, food stands, and a warm welcoming atmosphere.
