It is operated by “Kyoto City Daigo Gakuen” which tackles employment support for persons with disabilities . Until now, the school has sold confectionery such as donuts as its main products, but mainly on wholesale to college cooperatives and supermarkets, there were few opportunities to sit down and eat slowly. Hisako Terako said, “I wanted a place to be in contact with the local residents so that users could have a consciousness of” Working in this place “.

While searching the site, you can acquire adjacent land, and build a new facility as a garden. We set up a kitchen and a cafe on the first floor and prepared for the opening.
