The shop is easy to access but popular so you may have to line up for a bit. But it’s worth it!

Story & Recommendation
Kisshokaryu Gion is a sweets shop where you get to eat as much kinako as you like
Besides the famous sightseeing spots, there are many nice sweets shops in Kyoto, many of them located in small alleys. Many of these shops have a story and a long history behind them, and they take tradition seriously. Kisshokaryo is a sweets shop that takes kinako, roast soybean flour, very seriously, and is famous for its warabi-mochi. The shop is located a 5-minute walk away from subway Higashiyama Station. This shop is so popular among both Japanese and people from overseas that there is a line in front of it even before it opens. The first floor is the shopping area, and the second floor is the café. The most famous product they serve is the warabi-mochi, which is made from 100% bracken powder. The warabi-mochi here is sweeter than at other places, and has a nice stickiness to it. And don’t forget about their parfaits which look so great they’re bound to get posted on Instagram.
