In North-East Kyoto's Tsukamotocho area, in a quiet neighborhood is the stylish baked sweets shop and cafe called 'Hihautau'. Hihautau means 'The day sings' in Japanese and opened it's doors in July of 2019. It's located in a stylish 'residence/office' on a six minute walk from Eizan Line's Chayama station.

The residence stands out with its modern design consisting of a concrete base with canopy and vertical wood boards that run from the second floor all the way to the rooftop which has an asymmetrical shed type design. The café is located on the first floor of the house and consists of a front area and main area in the back and the owner's living and working space on the second floor. The entrance is on the right side of the building, following a narrow path to the courtyard. The courtyard sits in between the front and rear part of the café and has a contemporary design with stairs for the people living/working upstairs.

You will be able to choose from a seat in the front, back or courtyard area with up to 16 seats to choose from. The front area has sliding glass doors so if its not crowded you will have some privacy.

The café sells mainly delicious baked sweets (poundcake, scone, etc) and also has a large selection of cookies. In the warmer periods it also sells delicious bowls of shaved ice-cream. The bowls come in various flavors (melon, matcha, spice ginger, lemon and many more) and are quite big (size of a pineapple) and depending on the flavor come with delicious fresh fruit toppings, syrup and a merengue.

Hihautau is a stylish café that sells delicious sweets and shaved ice that is worth a visit if you are in the neighborhood.
