Story & Recommendation
Kezurihiya is a Japanese shaved ice café located underground in Gion
Located on the busy shopping street of Shijo-dori in Gion, this Japanese shaved ice café is located a bit hidden on the basement floor of the APA HOTEL. When you take the stairs downstairs by the hotel restaurant, you get to a place that feels old fashioned, not like a café offering shaved ice. And actually, this place is a bar at night and only a shaved ice café by day. This rather popular shaved ice café is, of course, most famous for its shaved ice. What differentiates their shaved ice from others is that it is almost as soft as snowflakes and it melts right in your mouth. Choosing the taste is easy, they have three different tastes: matcha, hojicha tea, and black tea, and each can be made into a set with a drink. They have different latte art-like designs on top of the shaved ice, and the designs change seasonally, but they, of course, have Kyoto-classics like maiko and Yasaka Pagoda designs too. These cute designs are rather nice, and there is condensed milk in the shaved ice, so you can tell why this place is so popular. They also offer takeout so you can eat some shaved ice and walk around Kyoto.
