Miniature models make up the menu at this tea shop in Arashiyama, Kyoto.

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!

akarui from Kagoshima, Japan

Beautiful decorations with the menu. I like very much Japanese restaurant showing what you will eat and for foreigners first coming to Japan it is very convenient...
