You can also buy food or drinks to go from Gochio Café, and you can also get their famous matcha chocolate croissant to go too.
The café is owned by the people behind the artisanal matcha farmers of Shimizu-ya, which is why you can also try the matcha they’ve made, made in the authentic style (so not as an espresso, but in the tea ceremony style). Their “Samidori” matcha is 1,000 yen, and the highest quality Asahi is 1,600 yen per cup, but for this price you also get a traditional Japanese sweet with the matcha tea.
