This shop provides convenient bite-sized dumplings you can enjoy while you walk
This veteran sweets shop was founded eighty years ago. It’s located at the corner of the major crossroads in Gion. The landmark is the white walls and the display of "Gion no tsuki" dumplings arrayed in a glass case. Popped onto skewers, these make the perfect grab-and-go food. Do give "Gion no tsuki" a try. The red bean paste has a mild sweetness and will lift up your spirits after a long day of walking.
Gion no tsuki

Gion no tsuki / 3 pieces Box ¥780│6 pieces Box ¥1,450
These round dumplings are designed to look like the moon. The soft dumplings have red bean paste inside. They’re bite-sized and easy to eat. They come in two colors, but the taste is the same.
Hitokuchi Minazuki
2Recommend!
Hitokuchi Minazuki / ¥300
“Uiro” is a steamed sweet with a toothy texture. Like "Gion no tsuki", they are bite-sized and easy to eat. At left is one with red beans, and at right is one made with green tea.

This sweet features red bean paste wrapped in chestnut. Each one is hand-wrapped in a green bamboo leaf.
How to buy

Each and every sweet has an expiration date of that day only. Eat them up soon! If you plan to keep strolling, try the "Gion no tsuki"; if you want to eat something back at your hotel, the Hitokuchi Minazuki is a good choice.

- Shopping Tips -
The shop is narrow, with just two clerks. When it gets crowded, you may have to wait, so just wait your turn and order.

This place has to be most famous for their Gion no Tsuki, Gion's Moon! It is a little bit different from a normal rice dumpling. The mochi rice cake is covered with red bean paste, and the brown (red bean) and green (matcha) rice dumpling look really cute. Their small size and reasonable prices make them a great snack to have if you get hungry while shopping.

The matcha balls they offer here are to die for! The taste of matcha is deep and rich, and two balls only cost you \160. Eating these matcha balls in the shop will make you feel like you were in an old Japanese movie!
