Japanese Sweets – as delicate as a Jewel
Saryo-Hosen is a well-known Japanese confectioner (Wagashi) in Kyoto.
Although they are located in a residential area and there are no train stations nearby, the store still receives many customers who come to enjoy their Japanese sweets in the traditional Kyoto-style Kyo-Machiya townhouse. All tables look out upon a Japanese garden and there is no background music in the restaurant, which creates a nice, homely ambiance. All of the sweets are made by very charming expert Japanese confectioners and are as delicate as jewels. The Warabimochi (Jelly-like bracken-dumpling) is an absolutely must try! This sweet is made with extremely rare Bracken starch flour and has an absolutely irresistible smooth, jelly-like texture!
Seasonal Japanese sweets of the day served with Matcha green tea are also available. As they change seasonally, you do not choose the six select sweets from the menu, but rather choose from the ones presented to you at the time of ordering.
All seats are on traditional Tatami mats, so you can enjoy wonderfully Japanese-styled seating while basking in the surroundings of the beautiful Japanese garden.
