Store Interior
While the menu leaves little to be desired, one of Natura’s main attractions is its riverside location. The store sits right next to the Kyu Yoshino River, and while the parking area sits right next to a main roadway the store itself is quiet and peaceful. Inside, customers have a wide view through large windows out onto the river, and there is even a small landing area and outside deck for those who want to enjoy the outdoors during the warmer months of the year.
