If you are looking for a lovely Japanese style café in central Osaka, look no further, 'Ahirukashiten' or Ahiru Sweets is the place to be. Ahiru means duck in Japanese and is the second and newest branch of Ahiru coffee that opened in July of 2022 located on 10 minute walk from Tanimachi Line’s Hirano station.
The cafe sits in a quiet neighborhood inside a renovated nagaya, which used to be a private house, next to Kogenji buddhist temple. The nagaya has been selected for preservation as part of the Hirano HOPE (HOusing with Proper Environment) zone, a plan to preserve historic and cultural assets and promote prosperity.  The exterior and some parts of the interior were mostly left in tact during the renovation. The café has a showa style exterior with a dark brown wood façade, typical Japanese rooftiles and a noren displaying the ahiru duck logo.
On the left of the café are glass sliding doors that are covered with wooden sliding doors when the café is closed. On the right behind the noren are double doors that serve as the entrance.
Inside you will be welcomed by a lovely rustic Japanese style interior with the café area on the left and kitchen/order counter on the right. You can first pick a seat and then make your order at the counter. The counter is new
The café area is spacious with plenty of seats consisting of five tables for two and a few counter seats along the wall in the back.  In the back of the cafe is a small shop area where you can buy original goods, coffee beans, tea, drip packs, lattebase  and even gift sets.
The menu consists consists of today's sweets which can be: scones, cheese cake, pudding, lemon tart, fig tart and other sweets depending on the season. To go with that they have coffee (drip coffee in various blends), decaf or cafe au lait (650 yen)), tea (straight or milk), houjicha latte, ginger ale or apple juice.
Ahiru sweets is an absolute lovely cafe in the middle of Osaka with delicious sweets and a nice atmosphere that really deserves a visit, especially if you like old Japanese style buildings.
カフェは静かの住宅街、光源寺の隣にもっと家だったリノベーションされた長屋にあります。長屋は、歴史的・文化的、平野郷地区HOPEゾーン事業 (HOusing with Proper Environment) として保存されています。 リノベーションで外観と内部の一部はそのまま残されました。 建物はダークブラウンウッドのファサード、典型的な日本の瓦とアヒルのロゴマークがついてるのれんで昭和のデザインになっています。
