<font face='impact'size='4'color='darkpink'>LITTLE OKONOMIYAKI STORES</font>
Small, cosy, cheap (around 400 - 500 yen for okonomiyaki). Friendly atmosphere. Run by women that have been doing this for years. When I visited Kyoto in March this year, I found out, to my horror, that my favourite okonomiyaki restaurant, Koharu (a favourite with Kyoto uni students), was burnt down not long ago. Farewell, Koharu! There is another similar restarant next door which served tasty okonomiyaki, but it just wasn't as dirty as Koharu. The people that I took there will know what I mean.

Favorite Dish: Okonomiyaki of course...modanyaki (okonomiyaki + yakisoba)...and beer

Directions: Vivre (a department store) is located halfway between sanjo and shijo kawaramachi. As you approach Vivre from Kawaramachi, turn right just before Vivre and walk about 100 - 150 metres down this small
