It was way too hot to walk around outside after our lunch at Kanei, so we decided to delay our visit to Daitokuji Temple and went into the cafe next door to cool down a bit more.  I later found out that this cafe named Sarasa has 6 locations across Kyoto, and this particular one we went to in Nishijin is famous for its location inside an 80+ years old public bathhouse.

吃完蕎麥麵後下午兩點多,實在熱的讓人無法在外面走動,決定鑽入隔壁一家看起來很有趣的咖啡店避暑(咦?說好的大德寺呢?)。後來才發現這個 “さらさSarasa” 似乎小有名氣,在京都有六家分店,而我們去的這家西陣店是由一棟80多年曆時的錢湯(公共澡堂)改造而成。

The logo, designed to resemble steam coming up from a hot spring.

門牌的字體也特意設計成像溫泉裏冒出來的煙。

Walls of the public bathhouse have been preserved, the patterned tiles rendering the space a little bit dizzying. Even the hair and make-up of the cafe staff is matching with the whole eclectic vibe.

澡堂的牆被完整的保留了下來,整個空間的色彩缤紛無比,連店員的發型和妝容都相當匹配。
