The area surrounded by Karasuma-Oike, Shijo-Karasuma, Kyoto Shiyakusho-mae Station and Shijo-Kawaramachi where fashionable stores are located in Kyoto,
The so-called “rice field” area of rice paddies.
In particular, the area around Gokomachi-dori, Fuyacho-dori, and Tominokoji-dori, which intersect with Sanjo-dori, is like Daikanyama in Tokyo,
It is a fun area to walk around.
Sarasa Fuyacho pausa is located in such a good location, in the upper part of Fuyacho Sanjo.
The nearest station is Kyoto Shiyakusho Mae Station, about a 3-minute walk away.

Naturally, this restaurant is also stylish. The exterior looks like a European house, and once inside, it looks like a mountain hut,
The atmosphere is stylish, yet relaxing.
Pausa” means “rest” in Italian, and it is indeed a perfect place to take a break.
The first floor is a coffee shop and a general store, while lunch is served on the second floor.
The atmosphere here changes at once to that of a mountain hut.
I like the unpretentious atmosphere.
There is a tatami room and a space for children, which seems to be easy to use.
In addition, there are some funny magazines, and I appreciate the atmosphere that allows you to stay as long as you like.
Lunch was not too small and just barely adequate. If you are a woman, it may be just right.
The taste is not bad. All the dishes are elaborate, and there is no sense of failure.
The way they serve a variety of items in small portions is very clever.
And since the food is somewhat healthy, it seems to be especially popular among women.
Somehow, the place was not too crowded even at lunch time,
It is a good place to linger after a long day of shopping, or to read your favorite book alone.
Kyoto is really good at renovating old-style buildings like this.
Not only Japanese-style townhouses, but also Western-style buildings like this, or more specifically, the Western worldview itself, is well designed.
Kyoto people don’t seem to like American-style buildings.
You rarely see that style in Kyoto. They are usually European.
Perhaps they are sympathetic to the traditional European style.
The fact that there are stores like this all over the place is definitely one of the factors that make Kyoto so interesting.
