Story & Recommendation
Have some rich matcha sweets at the off the beaten path café of Chasen at JR Kyoto Isetan department store’s 10th floor
This café that boasts a great selection of rich matcha desserts is in the unlikely location of Kyoto Ramen Koji on the 10th floor of JR Kyoto Isetan department store. It’s hard to think there would be a café where you can relax among all these ramen restaurants. This is truly an off the beaten path café. The concept of Chasen is to offer sweets that are “Cool, hot, and melting.” They have some sweets that offer a completely new sensation to you, like their freshly baked crispy apple pies topped with cold matcha ice cream. Of course they only use genuine Uji matcha. Here you can taste the unique, rich flavor of matcha. In 2016 they opened again after renovations, and they now have spacious counter seating from where you can see through the window all of Kyoto, and their seating area is now more spacious. Most of the restaurants and cafes around Kyoto station are crowded so there are not many cafes where you can relax. This café is my recommendation.
