Kamo Mitarashi Chaya

Candy Store
A venerable tea house located across from Shimogamo-jinja Shrine in Kyoto City’s Sakyo Ward said to be the originator of mitarashi dango dumplings in a sweet soy sauce glaze. The chewy dumplings of the shop’s signature mitarashi dango go well with the mild brown sugar and soy sauce glaze and are broiled to perfection, giving them a toasty flavor. The shop is purely Japanese in décor and design, and in addition to takeout, patrons can enjoy their treats in the eat-in space. The shop’s seasonal items like zenzai sweet bean soup, warabi mochi bracken starch dumplings, and shaved ice are also popular.

    店内と、外側にイートインコーナーがあり、みたらし団子を食べる女の子たちでいっぱいでした。団子の大きさは小ぶりで、甘すぎずあっさりとした味わいです。下鴨神社と縁が深くて、歴史を感じさせる甘味だと思いました。
  • オープン・エア席が安心

    「出町ろろろ」のランチの後に、鴨川べりを散策してデザートを、ってことで立ち寄ってみました。焼きたてのみたらし団子はやはり美味しいです。茶屋らしく、緋毛氈のオープン・エア席があり、密にならずに安心です。
