Saryo Housen
Saryo-Hosen is well known as a Japanese sweets (Wagashi) shop in Kyoto. Although it is located in the residential district and there is no subway station near the shop, so many people visit and enjoy its sweets at the traditional Kyoto-style townhouse called Kyo-Machiya. All tables are with a Japanese garden you can look at while eating. There is no background music to make cozy ambiance and spend your time homely. The sweets that are made by a very charming Japanese sweets expert, are really de...morelicate like a jewel. Warabi mochi (Bracken-dumpling) is an absolutely MUST-EAT sweet! This is made by Bracken flour that is extremely rare! You will be into bouncy and smooth texture. Seasonal Japanese sweets of the day with Matcha are also available. 6 of these authentic sweets are not on the menu book and instead 6 kinds of them will be served instead shown for you to select carefully.

All seats are on Tatami mats. Please enjoy at Japanese-style surroundings.

This is one of the places where I wanted to visit really. Warabi mochi is really famous.
It was far more delicious than I expected. In addition, the garden and a traditional Kyoto-style townhouse is so my type that I thought I wanted to come personally. A staff is very kind and gives a good service to you. So totally I had a great time in there.
