Amairo Cafe

Shopinfo ↓↓↓


Located in an alley near Karasuma station  is ‘Amairo’, a small cafe that is famous for their round taiyaki, a Japanese cake (usually fish-shaped) filled with either azuki (sweet bean paste), custard or a mix of the two. 


‘Amairo’ is off the beaten path and can be a little hard to find. The entrance of the alley faces a tower-mansion in a semicrowded street. It has no clear signs except for a small chalkboard that hangs inside the entrance so doesn’t stand out. Once you do find the entrance, walk all the way to the back and you will find the shop on your left.

お店の外観は京都だからウッドとガラス が和風のスタイルに組み合わせてしています。絶対に観光者に大喜びです。

The cafe has a Japanese style wooden facade with glass windows incorporated in the wood, we are in Kyoto after all.



The interior is modern but simple. There are 2 counters with counterchairs, 1 standing stable and two pair-seats (small benches) next to a window in the back with a view of a mini Japanese garden. 

Amairo has a simple menu that offers drinks: “coffee, soda or juice” and of course the their main treat, Amairo’s TAIYAKI. 



Amairo’s taiyaki are very special as they have are round shaped unlike the traditional taiyaki that are usually fish-shaped. The taiyaki comes with 3 types of fillings: “custard, azuki or a mix of both”. 

They are freshly baked, so absolutely delicious and go very well with a cup of coffee. 


If you are in Kyoto a visit to Amairo is heavily recommended.
