Tucked on a side street of Kyoto's Gion is Cafe Fugetsu.
It is housed in a building that was formerly a tea house.
Fugetsu is off of the main drag of Hanamikoji Dori, so is a bit quieter and less thronged with tourists.
Once inside, though, and you are entering a different world.
It specializes in green tea and tofu cafes and beverages.
From Minami-za Theater, walk towards Yasaka Shrine on Shijo Dori. At Hanamikoji, turn right and head into the main area of Gion. At the fourth corner on the left, turn left (east). Cafe Fugetsu is on the right side of the street.
