Kaze-no-Engawa (風のえんがわ)

“Kaze-no-Engawa” is a fantastic café and restaurant in Gotsu.



Going through a little grove of trees, you can find “Kaze-no-Engawa”. 


And you can choose where you sit down, a chair or Japanese mats (Tatami). Sitting down on the Tatami is very relaxing. Kaze-no-Engawa has a wood stove, as you can see in this picture. When I went there, a piano concert was held! I had chocolate cake and tea like this.



Ice coffee and walnut cake

It was such a nice time and I could relax.

This place sometimes has different kinds of events. So please check it on the web site.
