Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
Kinako soft cream is the best ever for me. I did not have opportunity to have Kinako once a year so far, however I would go there to have it frequently, in spite of cold season like a winter.
We highly recommend that you visit this shop after having lunch around Kyoto station or between your sightseeing as it is located in JR Kyoto station building. I especially enjoyed fluffy Matcha role cake with Hoji tea which is different from other green tea. Hoji tea or "Hoji-cha" is roasted in a porcelain pot over charcoal, so it has a toasty flavor. Staff in this shop are very nice and kind, so please feel free to ask any questions!
