Hi, it’s Mrs. Wada back on duty. This time I’m going to introduce another cafe in Akaiwa City, Kimama Cafe. We were on our way back towards Okayama from Vintage Toy Museum trip when we spotted the sign of this cafe.
It’s a small cafe in a Japanese house. It has three tables, maybe can accommodate around 10 people at most. It was only us at the time of our visit so it was ok, probably it would feel crowded even if another one or two groups are there.
It feels like visiting someone’s place. The cafe is decorated with handmade crafts and many items are for sale. It has a nice mountain view from inside. We only had sweets and coffee but this cafe also serves lunch meals.
I would like to share a log house cafe in Akaiwa City called Kiraku this time.
Log House Cafe Kiraku in Akaiwa City
We found this place while cycling on Katatetsu Roman Kaido on the other day. A little doggy (on the right of the pic) welcomed (barked) us. He would BITE. Don’t get closer. What a a guard dog.

1240 Inamaki, Akaiwa City, Okayama prefecture
8:30 – 17:00
Enter the log house and see how compact it is. Just like a hobbit’s house! (even to us). Cute. The couple owner told me that they built this log house themselves (took them a year!) and all the tables, chairs, etc. are all handmade as well. Wow, great job! Another thing that got my attention is photo collection of mountain animals hanging on the wall.
I got an okonomiyaki and Mrs. Wada got yakisoba.
Actually another reason we stopped by is that Cafe Meijiya owner has mentioned this place on his blog (in JP) that it serves good coffee. So we’d wanted to take a visit. It was the right timing on our cycling day!
