Nagoya, Japan: Kakuozan Walk

This is a well-known Indian Curry Restaurant. They sell many different kinds of teas in their store next door. You can also purchase some of their curry kits to make them at home! I highly recommend eating lunch here, I had their spinach curry set which came with naan and some kind of chutney and onions. Very delicious! This restaurant is called Eikokuya.

Their tea shop next door.

This is the first block of Kakuozan with the older buildings. This is the street where Starbucks is on the corner and you can find Chez Shibata on this street as well, but more about that later.

The shop owner made their own little elephant statue out of paper. How cute is this!

There is a small specialty cheese shop on this street as well. It is on the opposite side of the street from Chez Shibata and Eikokuya Curry house. I didn't have an opportunity to eat here since they weren't open yet when I was here in the morning, but they do offer a little food using their cheeses! Cheese sample platter anyone?

Here is the entrance of the cake shop Chez Shibata. It is a famous cake shop in Nagoya and they have the most beautiful and delicious cakes here! They also make cookies for those of you who want to take a little something home and a cake just want survive a plane or shinkansen ride.

 I would have taken a photo of the fig cake that I ate, disappeared too quickly to have its photo taken. Sorry, maybe next time!
