THE SPICE Co. Exterior

I found it in Kyotango in northern Kyoto! Revitalize your hometown with the stimulation of spices [THE SPICE Co.]

May 2, 2021 open

The 33-story wooden building built in the Taisho era is a former inn run by my grandparents. Cheer up your hometown sinking in Corona! Mr. Shibata, the owner of an apparel store in Osaka, made a U-turn in 2021 in order to inspire everyone even a little.
I opened a shop that sells spice curry, which is my second favorite thing after clothes.

Various spices from THE SPICE Co.

Kyotango Koshihikari, which Mr. Shibata praises as ``overwhelmingly delicious,'' is surrounded by spiced curry that is typically mildly spicy with the aroma of dashi. There are four types of curry, including the standard chicken curry and three curries that change weekly, so you can choose just one or mix and match your favorite types.

His next goal is to travel around the country in his kitchen car.
