This is a cafe connected to a photo studio. The studio was established in 1919, and the cafe opened recently in 2012. As the Gora area is filled with slopes, the owner hoped to create a rest stop for visitors. Their specialty is the train-shaped pound cake filled with raisins and served with train cookies. The cake goes well with a delicious coffee, which is another specialty. If the photo studio is not reserved, visitors can have their photographs taken, which should make a nice memory of the trip.
