Enjoy great sweets and the traditional tableware at the Japanese café Ten by Kiyomizu Temple
There is a shop near Kiyomizu Temple, on the street that is lined with busy souvenir shops, which recently comes up a lot on social media: the Japanese café & shop of Ten.
They are especially famous of their no-bake green matcha cheesecake that has a marbled pattern on it. This artistic cheesecake just screams “Take a picture of me!”
The reason for the popularity is not only in the looks. They use matcha by the venerable Kyoto tea shop Ippodo, and the carefully crafted cakes are delicious. Cute and delicious; of course they are popular.
The café is quiet and has a relaxing atmosphere. They sell souvenirs by the entrance, so take a look at them too, and remember to visit this café when going to Kiyomizu Temple!
