This makes a great half day or day trip from Kyoto : lunch at Cafe Millet and a visit to the surrounding countryside , villages like Kurama and Ohara with temples , gardens , hiking trails . The lunch was organic, vegan , beautifully presented and delicious. Small portions , Japanese style, but satisfying with many courses and different tastes: squash potage, tofu, grilled veggies, yam&apple tart, vegan pizza, vegan quiche .The cafe is easily accessible by Kyoto bus 34 from Demachiyanagi subway station (bus stop E, just outside exit 7). Take bus to terminus Shiroyama. The renovated farmhouse is 3 minute walk straight ahead, with small sign Millet. The cafe sponsors art , music , crafts workshops too. A waitstaff person at Tosca, Kyoto, told us she has biked there.

Transport: take Kyoto bus 34 from Demachiyanagi station. Use exit 7 (escalator ) from the Keihan line and the bus "rotary" bus stop E is right outside .Take bus to village Shizuhara, to terminus Shiroyama. Walk 3 mins straight ahead to farmhouse on left side of main road, down small incline (old road). We reserved our meal by email since we don't have a phone.
