Kimono vol.2

We headed for a Japanese restaurant ‘Mokuan’ near JR Kurashiki station afterwords.
It takes 5min on foot from the station, or 3min by car.

I've always wanted to try that restaurant

This building used to be a residence built about 80years ago, then it was remodeled and it turned into the restaurant.

It has a warm feel You can have a meal listening live music.


You have a choice of course menu or Japanese style bento (lunch box) at lunch time. 
                                                                                              The menu is being changed monthly.
We selected ‘12 masu early spring bento’.
1727補正 IMG_1739.jpg 12 varieties of foods are offered in beautiful dishes. They each please the eye and reflect the bounty of the seasons.

The main course is served with a bowl of rice and miso soup.
You can also get a piece of cake and coffee (or tea) after the meal.


All so good

After lunch, we headed for Kurashiki Bikan area. A ten-minute walk will take you there.

This area is one of the most popular tourist destinations of Okayama, as it remains old buildings and residents from the Edo era.

In fact, we saw a lot of foreigners.
Some of them asked us if they could take photos of us (because they were fond of our Kimono) .
No problem Though, it’s a bit embarrassing…


We strolled around enjoying historic town scape and checking some shops.

This is my favorite shop, ‘Kaze no yakata’.
In this shop, you can find fascinating craftworks like this.

It’s called ‘Kinu temari’, a spherical ornament (temari) woven from silk threads.
As you can see, it has a tiny doll in it
Such a delicately made craftwork...


I fell in love with them immediately

This is ‘Kurashiki coffee kan’ near Naka bridge in Kurashiki bikan area.
It’s a café which has been loved by local people since it opened in 1971.

The interior is all wood, bricks and tiles.

 
This cafe offers aromatic coffee using carefully serected coffee beans.
According to the manager of the café, high-quality beans and the flannel drip method are important to bring out the special richness and aroma of the coffee


We tried cappuccino and Viennese coffee.

I was especially fond of Viennese coffee.
The strong aroma and mild cream go well with …


The café also offers freshly-roasted coffee beans.
It would make your coffee break time more relaxing

I had a taste of original coffee chocolates.

I liked the combination of bitter coffee and sweet chocolate.


By the way, my recommendation is a unique coffee ‘The queen of Kohaku’.
The coffee is served hot though it has a lump of ice in it. The harmony of bitter coffee, aroma of liqueur, and rich cream is impressive.

I’d love to taste their other coffee next time


He is the manager of the shop. Thanks for everything
