Review of Toraya Karyo Kyoto Ichijo

TripAdvisor Traveler Rating
Reviewed:2018/11/25 A Peaceful Dessert Shop
Toraya Karyo is a very peaceful dessert shop. Youll find the takeout dessert shop on the main road but will need to turn in and walk a bit in the alleyway to reach the sitdown dessert shop. Step in...
Reviewed:2017/06/15 A good rest at a traditional Japanese sweets shop
Its so close to the imperial gardens that you may as well make a visit if you want to take a break. Ask to sit outside, facing the garden and youll get a peaceful moment or two.
Reviewed:2017/04/11 Perfect place to relax after visiting the Imperial Palace
A beautiful, refined and peaceful afternoon tea stop after a long walk across the city.
The architecture of Hiroshi Naito creates a perfect setting for the refined Kyoto-style sweets of Toraya.

          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.
