New hot spot in Kyoto

A new cafe named "Berry Cafe" opened along side of the long corridor of the Kyoto Station
on the Shinkansen-side. They have a eat-in space and there is always a long line
of people waiting outside the cafe.

Looking at the show-window is also so much fun although having a piece with a cup
of coffee sounds a lot better!
