A long-standing confectioner that first opened in 1882 and has been making confections that convey the charm of Kyoto ever since. They continue to make delicate Japanese confections that show the passing of the seasons in accordance with the 24 divisions of the luni-solar calendar year. Their most famous confection is their Juraku steamed bun, made with a unique flavored dough and stuffed with red-bean paste that was once solely for the Jurakudai palace, which has been made by Shioyoshiken since their founding. It has a gentle flavor with a moderate level of sweetness. Their treats, which also express the seasons through their shapes, colors, and imprints, are also a feast for your eyes.

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.
