Story & Recommendation
Try warabi-mochi and amazake in a space that recreates a traditional Japanese cafe
This amami-dokoro or traditional Japanese café is situated roadside with a view of Yasaka Pagoda. The gate in front of the shop is impressive. When you come through the gate, you’ll find a pretty little garden. Inside the shop are tons of Japanese dolls and other very Japanese-style decorations crowded around, making for a really fun atmosphere. This space recreates what an old-style Japanese café might have looked like. Everything is handmade at the shop with carefully selected quality ingredients— you should be sure to try the warabi-mochi and the amazake.

[Owner's comment]
When you think of Kyoto, you think of warabimochi. And when it comes to warabimochi, Bunnosuke Chaya is the place to go! We have been making the finest sweet treats in Kyoto for more than 100 years. In addition to warabimochi and anmitsu, you can also enjoy shaved ice in summer, and dango dumplings in winter.
