Japanese food isn’t what you’ll normally go for when visiting Tagaytay but this new cafe in Crosswinds will make you think otherwise. If you’re craving Japanese food or simply missing Japan, you’ll have the same feels at Cafe Yama. The newly-opened spot is decorated with traditional lanterns and murals, and if you don’t want to dine at the main restaurant, you can go for a more scenic view at their mini gazebos on the hillside. Feel cozy and warm with a serving of udon or ramen starting at Php545.

Operating hours: Open daily from 10 AM to 9 PM
