This Japanese confectionary near Kiyomizu Temple has been in business for 100 years. The interior has a traditional Japanese feel that hasn’t changed since the shop first opened. Just looking at some of the antique items used for years is a joy; some of these include an old black telephone, Japanese dolls, and an antique clock. The specialty here are ohagi. Delightfully sweet adzuki (red-bean paste) on the outside, with fluffy pounded rice on the inside, these ohagi go p...moreerfectly with matcha. We hope you’ll enjoy these all-hand-made sweets with no pre-made ingredients.

Hideaway shops and spots of worthwhile destination. Recommended if you are keen on these genres.
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
This is a two-piece set with usucha (a type of matcha) and ohagi. We recommend following a bite of ohagi with a sip of matcha.
Shiruko (red-bean soup) with 2 pieces of fried mochi (rice cake). Let the mochi absorb the red-bean flavor and enjoy. This dish is very hot, so be careful.
Have some of this when you’ve had too much sweetness; the salty flavor will cleanse your palate.
