    Kyoto Kyoutoshi Nakagyou-ku Kiyamachisanjou Crow
    This venerable wagashi (Japanese sweet) shop was founded in 1804. First operating in a time when only fresh (not preserved) sweets could be made, the shop created baked sweets filled with sweet red bean paste and has continued to craft Kyoto treats in line with the times beloved by the masses. In addition to its titular geppei rice cakes, the shop offers a wide selection of fresh sweets. Particularly popular are its warabi-mochi cakes made with real warabi (bracken) starch; the sweet red bean paste, perfect with a cup of green tea, and the melt-in-your-mouth texture is exquisite. Sanjo Station is the closest station to the shop.

    表のウインドウのお菓子のディスプレイに惹かれて入店してみました。 栗蒸し羊羹に黒糖のカステラが合わさっていたり、珍しいお菓子がありました。 地元の人も買いに来ていました。

    Kyoto Kyoutoshi Higashiyama-ku Masuyachou 349
    A café founded in 1914 located along the stone steps of Ninenzaka in Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto City, Kyoto Prefecture. The menu remains virtually unchanged since the café was first opened, maintaining historic, handmade flavors. Said to have been a favorite of Taisho period painter Yumeji Takehisa, the interior is reminiscent of this era and is both unusual and somehow nostalgic. The café’s specialty is its sanshoku hagi-no-mochi, which gives diners the chance to enjoy three varieties of ohagi rice cakes filled with sweet red bean paste. The Kyoto Zenzai, a sweet red bean soup, is also a favorite of patrons thanks to its delicate deliciousness. In summer, the most popular item is the tokusei shiruko shake, cooled sweet red bean soup with rice flour dumplings.

    This is a little tea house, serving authentic Japanese snacks, mainly made up from red beans & macha. The price is very reasonable and the cosy ambience gives a nice break from the crowd & seemingly...

Kyoto Main Areas

around-area-map

Its wooden tea houses, shuffling geisha, and spiritual sights have seen Kyoto hailed as the heart of traditional Japan, a world apart from ultramodern Tokyo. Despite being the Japanese capital for over a century, Kyoto escaped destruction during World War II, leaving behind a fascinating history which can be felt at every turn, from the fully gold-plated Kinkakuji Temple down to traditional customs such as geisha performances and tea ceremonies, which are still practiced to this day.
