Kanshundo Higashi Branch (甘春堂東店)


Other Food

This Japanese sweets shop located in the Higashiyama Ward of Kyoto City in Kyoto Prefecture is famous for its Chaju-no-Utsuwa, an edible confectionary that is so elaborately made it is nearly mistake for a real chawan (rice bowl or tea cup). Instead of breaking it and tasting it as is, you can enjoy a rather different taste by drinking matcha green tea in the bowl. Their namagashi sweets modeled on the shape of flowers and sweet bean jellies are also popular. At the on-site teahouse, visitors can enjoy the taste of Japanese sweets including Japanese confections, anmitsu, and matcha parfait. With advance reservation one can also experience how to make Japanese confections.

          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.
