Miyama 10

Happy Monday, lovelies! Today I’m going to share you some photos of Miyama, a small village in Kyoto.

Miyama is about 90 minutes drive away from Kyoto station, hidden in deep mountains. It is famous for their thatched-roof houses, and yes, these traditional Japanese houses are so rare nowadays.

Most of them are private houses, but some of them are museums and small shops so that you can go inside and look at the structures.

The house on the left in the photo above is the restaurant where we had our lunch; I believe that it was the only restaurant in the area. The food? Super fresh, hand-kneaded soba noodles, yum!
