Kissa KoreHere is located in a relaxing residential area close to Senbon Street and the Sanjo Shopping arcade in Nakagyo-ku, Kyoto.

Kissa” in Japanese means Japanese style cafe, and “KoreHere” means Carefree, relax in the Maori language of New Zealand. And that is exactly what we want you to do when you visit us. Simple relax and have nothing to worry about.
It is interesting also to know that the pronounciation of Japanese and the Maori language is very similar.

Kissa KoreHere is the gateway to the Sanjo Mirai(future) Factory complex which houses several artists, architecture offices and designers.
We would like you to spend as much time as you want at our Japanese style Cafe which is in a traditional Kyoto style house that has now turned 110 years old. If you have never set foot into a Machiya Style house, it will be a real treat as you can see the high beams of the roof, a traditional style earth-layered floor as well as clay walls. Even if you have no interest in architecture you will love the atmosphere that is provided.

Once you take one step out of Kissa KoreHere, you can find yourself amongst houses and buildings of the past along with the World Heritage Nijo Castle just some 10 minutes away. An important cultural asset can be found in the likes of the Jinya Residence. Also close by is Mibu Temple, a deeply related area for the Shinsengumi, a group of activists that tried to keep the peace in Kyoto when the Edo period (end of Tokugawa Shogunate) came to an end in the 1860’s.
There is much history to feel around where Kissa KoreHere is located, but there is also a modern side of the area, with many popular cake shops, bread stores and even galleries, studios for Japanese traditional craftsman.
It is a chance to mingle amongst the locals.
After you visit us here at Kissa KoreHere, how about taking a stroll around the local area?
