Reviewed:2020/01/01 Delicious Matcha food
30 minutes wait time was worth for these dishes in Uji. 2 minutes walk from JR Uji station. (just across main road)
Reviewed:2019/12/12 My first tea ceremony
I loved the experience of grinding my own matcha tea before the tea ceremony. I will never forget the taste for the first time of the Koicha tea, it will stay with me forever! I am glad I visited...
Reviewed:2019/11/28 Good green tea dessert
There was a long queue best to get a queue no and explore uji before coming back to enjoy green tea dessert and tea. The outdoor seatings had heater.

          Kyoto Areas


          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.
