Introducing 'Totaro': Kyoto's Newest Cafe that opened 25 March 2023 and is housed in a renovated kyomachiya

Totaro, located near Gojo station, is a standing-only cafe that's housed in a beautifully renovated kyomachiya. Although the exterior of the building may appear as an old, run-down machiya, the interior has undergone a partial renovation that blends the old and the new seamlessly.

Totaro's entrance consisting of traditional glass in wood doors can slide open completely, revealing the cafe's stylish interior. The minimalist decor is in perfect harmony with the traditional features of the machiya, creating a unique and inviting space.

Besides coffee matcha is one of the main drinks at Totaro, and it's not hard to see why. The cafe serves some of the best matcha in town, prepared by skilled baristas who take great care in every cup. To complement the coffee or matcha, Totaro also offers a selection of Japanese sweets, which are perfect for those with a sweet tooth.

But that's not all – if you don't order the sweets on the menu, drinks at Totaro come with two small castella cakes on a lovely small dish. The cafe's dedication to quality extends to every aspect of its offerings, ensuring that every customer has a delightful experience.

Totaro is a standing-only cafe, which means that customers can enjoy their drinks and snacks while standing at the counter. This creates a lively and dynamic atmosphere that's perfect for those who are on the go, or for those who simply want to experience a different type of cafe culture.

All in all, Totaro is a must-visit for anyone who loves coffee, matcha, and Japanese sweets. Its stylish interior, delicious drinks, and attention to detail make it a perfect spot where one can enjoy traditional sweets with their coffee. So the next time you're near Gojo station, be sure to check out Totaro and experience its unique charm for yourself.
