A Store on the Gion Tour Route Selling Delicious Wagashi (Japanese Sweets)
The flagship store of the longstanding Japanese confectioner, Kagizen Yoshifusa, is located along the shopping arcade of the Gion district. This over 300-year-old store can be easily spotted thanks to its distinctive huge red shop curtain.
The inside of the store, with all its old cupboards, tables and paintings really gives you a sense of just how old this store is.
Japanese sweets or Wagashi are sold at the entrance and in the rear, there's a café. "Kuzukiri” one of the shop's specialties, is made to order, so has long been one of the most popular items at the café.
Why not drop in for a relaxing time after walking your way around the Gion district.
