Shichimiya Honpo七味家本舗

Other Food

This spice shop first opened some 360 years ago as a tea house for visitors to the Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The tea house became renowned for its “karashi-yu,” hot water sprinkled with chili powder, and this eventually led to it becoming a shichimi (traditional hot Japanese seven spice blend) specialty shop. Today, the shop sells a variety of foods with a focus on shichimi, sansho (Japanese pepper), and ichimi (cayenne pepper).

清水寺に向かう参道にあって、いつ行っても国内外の観光客でごった返している人気のお店です。ノーマルな「七味」がお勧めで、お土産にも大変喜ばれる一品です。今回は横浜で暮らす姪っ子たちと一緒に行きましたが、気に入ってお土産用に買いこんでいました。

松原通と産寧坂の角地にある七味家本舗。とても魅力ある店構えに思わず入店してしまった。創業360年と聞き驚いてしまった。京都では、湯豆腐やおうどんの文化で欠かせないのが七味唐辛子。お願いすれば店内で、だし汁に入れて試食させて頂けます、七味の香りの良さもいいのですが山椒の香りがどちらかと言えばタイプだね。
Reviewed:2019/04/26 香りがよいです。
普通の七味よりも山椒が強めなのか爽やかないい香りがします。
いろんな入れ物があって、特に黒七味の入れ物は高級感があってお土産にもちょうどよかったです。

          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.
