About Us


Former rickshaw guide,
our female shop manager's secret menu

Our manager used to be one of the rickshaw guides here in Kyoto Arashiyama, so be sure to ask her any questions you may have about Kyoto or Arashiyama! Her #secretmenu is the so-called 'soft-serve-ice-cream-challenge', where the staff will stack as much soft serve ice cream as possible, right in front of your eyes. This 1100JPY option is not listed on the menu, so please inquire directly with our staff!


Popular for 'go-en' (good relationships) wishes is our 'Ebisuke'

'Ebisuke' is the official mascot for both 'Ebisuya Rickshaw' and the 'Rickshaw Café'. The stone Ebisuke is sitting on the steps to our Cafe, greeting you and wishing us a good cafe-customer relationship. Some say that their personal relationships, including marriage, have improved or happened after touching Ebisuke... there is only one way to find out ;)

Coffee to go can be ordered inside the cafe or at our take-out window.
