Kasagiya- かさぎ屋 -
This Japanese confectionary near Kiyomizu Temple has been in business for 100 years. The interior has a traditional Japanese feel that hasn’t changed since the shop first opened. Just looking at some of the antique items used for years is a joy; some of these include an old black telephone, Japanese dolls, and an antique clock. The specialty here are ohagi. Delightfully sweet adzuki (red-bean paste) on the outside, with fluffy pounded rice on the inside, these ohagi go perfectly with matcha. We hope you’ll enjoy these all-hand-made sweets with no pre-made ingredients.[Owner's comment] We have been in business since 1914 and have continued to carry on the same taste. We are looking forwardto your visit!
For those who like anko, please do try the ohagi. There is also ohagi shaved ice during the summer. Each customer must order one item, so please be prepared.
