Because weekend mornings are the perfect excuse for a big American-style breakfast, I had these one Sunday in Kyoto after we went for a walk in the Arashiyama bamboo forest. SAGANOYU, a beautiful restaurant restored from an old Japanese bathhouse, combines two of my favorite things all in one – matcha green tea and pancakes.
