Gion Tokuya (ぎおん徳屋)

4.5

Candy Store

This cafe featuring Japanese-style sweets located in Gion’s Hanamikoji-dori Street is well-known as a place where lines can form. Its famous product is the Tokuya’s Hon Warabimochi, made with domestically-produced hon-warabiko (bracken starch) and refined Japanese sugar. Despite its jiggling appearance, the appeal lies in its smooth, thick texture that melts in the mouth. The Omatcha’s Hon Kuzumochi, which uses real Yoshino-produced kuzu and high quality matcha green tea, is also popular and one can try a mix of that with the Hon Warabimochi. In addition, they also offer sweets that bring out the delicious taste of the raw materials such as zenzai (red bean soup) and shaved ice made with tea. One can fully enjoy their Japanese sweets that make the most of the ingredients’ flavors amidst a pure Japanese atmosphere. The closest station is Gion-Shijo Station.

Reviewed:2019/10/12 Great Kakigori
This was my first time trying kakigori. Chose the one with condensed milk and red bean paste. Which also included red bean mochi (great surprise). It was huge!
Extremely friendly and helpful staff.
Reviewed:2020/03/24 注文すぐに提供とは?!
今回三連休でしたが、行列が非常に少なく、15分程で入れました。
注文を受けてから作る~と聞いていたのですが、注文すぐに出てきました。
確かにプルプルのわらび餅ではありますが、大量生産のような気がして、ちょっと興ざめ。

久しぶりに目の前を通ったらほとんど並んでいなかったので思わず入ってしまいました。
久しぶりに食べたわらび餅は相変わらずとぅるんとしていて美味しかったです。

          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.
