Ichimonjiya Wasuke (一文字屋 和輔)

4.5

Candy Store

A venerable café and sweet shop founded over 1,000 years ago located on the approach to the east gate of Imamiya-jinja Shrine in Kyoto City’s Kita Ward. The shop’s renowned aburi mochi are an old-fashioned Japanese treated made by taking sticky, course pounded glutinous rice covered with kinako toasted soybean flour and broiling it over a charcoal fire on bamboo skewers. Ever-so-slightly sweet, the toasty aroma and delicious light brown miso sauce stimulates the appetite. Said to aid in healing from disease and even warding away disaster, these little treats have been popular with shrine visitors since ancient times. Patrons can take a break and enjoy a sweet from the couches and tatami seating in and outside the shop.

          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.
