Planning your trip to SETOUCHI



Enjoy Kurashiki Afternoon Tea

Enjoy Kurashiki Afternoon Tea

This is a unique gourmet event promoted by Kurashiki City every winter to highlight some of the city’s most elegant cafes, and has been held since 2016. This event allows guests to enjoy a cafe’s specially prepared dessert plate with tea, coffee, or other drinks of their choice while enjoying the company of friends. This year, I decided to try it with my own friends. We chose the picturesque Cafe Cascade, located on the outer edge of the Kurashiki Bikan Historical Area.
