Hi, it’s Mrs. Wada, back on duty. I’m going to introduce a cafe in Katsuyama, Maniwa City named Capibara Coffee.
Capibara Coffee is located in the main street of Katsuyama Historic Preservation District, known for noren curtains. The way to the cafe is on the right side of this building.
Inside the cafe; there’s a counter on the right and more seats on the left
(window side on left is facing the Asahi River)
I ordered soy milk hot cocoa while Mr. Wada got hot coffee.
We also had their honey lemon toast.
During our visit, they only served toast for food. They have more options for drinks. Checkout their menu here.

If you have a chance to visit Katsuyama, how about have some drink at Capibara Coffee for a relaxing break?
Thanks for stopping by!
Hola amigos. It’s Autumn! What’s in Autumn? Camping! So I would like to share our autumn camp in Katsuyama, Maniwa City (Okayama Prefecture) this time.
Autumn Camp in Katsuyama: Utsukushii Mori Camp Ground
Katsuyama is in the same Maniwa City where Hiruzen is, however it’s like 60 minutes away by car. Since it is run by Maniwa City, rates are reasonably low (1,000 yen for a tent space/night) and it has other facilities like bungalows as well. Reservation is required (Call or visit the city office. Check information below).
It is like a 30-minute drive from JR Chugoku-Katsuyama Station, pretty much in the middle of the mountain but looks well maintained with full of nature still! There is famous Kanba Falls on the way. We would like to stop by later on.
We brought our own tent. Basically we can set it up anywhere we feel like.
At night, I felt a bit afraid hearing animals barking but turns out, it was all cool. Perhaps I was overthinking (hehe).
Morning! It was still October but quite chilly already….(shaking). Let’s get warmed up with hot coffee! By the way, payment can be done at the visitor center.
