Kirara Cafe

Kirara cafe

Kirara is a charming log house where you can relax and spend some quality time while savouring a selection of delicious beverages and sweets. Tea, coffee and hot chocolate are of course on the menu, as well as less common items, such as a Korean Ginseng drink.

Inside Kirara cafe

Kirara also serves a special acorn curry meal. You can order it for lunch or dinner, but you need to reserve one week in advance, as acorns have to be boiled 30 times before they can be eaten. Acorns were an important part of the Jomon diet (the antique Japanese civilization). The Jomon era uniquely enjoyed 10000 years of peace, and Kirara's owner serves her acorn meal as a reminder.

Kirara is open Friday to Monday, from 10am to 7pm (later if you reserve an acorn menu).
