Institut Franco-Japonais du Kansai

関西日仏学館

The Institut Franco-Japanois du Kansai is a much loved building and garden a short walk southwest of the Hyakumanben crossroads opposite the main campus of Kyoto University.

The distinctive European-style building was renovated in 2003 and the grounds are a wonderful place to sample French cuisine at the cafe (open Tues-Sat; 11am-8.30pm) or a refreshing evening drink. The restaurant is particularly popular in Kyoto's cherry-blossom season.

The Institut Franco-Japonais du Kansai opened in 1927 to teach French language and culture, which remains the Institute's primary function. In addition, the institute stages films, exhibitions and music events.
