Our first two stores (Higashiyama and Arashiyama) are both nestled within the globally-revered tourist destination of Kyoto, Japan. Because of this, we often become crowded with visitors from around the world, making it difficult for locals to beat the long queues. So, when we began looking for our third location, we aimed for a central area that would be more accessible for our native Kyoto customers.
It just so happened that at the time, a popular fashion department store, known as “Fujii Daimaru”, kindly offered us a space on their ground floor – and we relished the opportunity to join!
% Arabica Kyoto Fujii Daimaru is located on Sijyo Street (4th Street) in the heart of Kyoto. It’s considered to be the most convenient area in Kyoto, with a plethora of shops and restaurants to choose from. One notable feature of our Fujii Daimaru store is the extra seating space, so you won’t be lacking for a place to rest with a good cup of coffee. If you would like something to nibble on, there is an excellent supermarket on the underground floor, so you are welcome to bring a snack to enjoy with your coffee
