Kasagiyaかさぎ屋

Candy Store

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.

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.
