Story & Recommendation
The long-standing teahouse known as “Anmitsu Tsukigase”
|The establishment of Tsukigase can be traced back to 1926. Originally, the small shop was located in Shijo-kawaramachi, Kyoto and ever since has been serving desserts made from carefully selected ingredients. Tsukigase has three stoers in Kyoto, the head store of Gion honten, sakaimachi-ten, and the Kyoto-takashimaya-ten (in Takashimaya department store), which we introduce in this article. All three stores share the fact that their most popular dish is their anmitsu. This is precisely the reason why the stores are known as “anmitsu-tsukigase.” There’s no need to say, this place has been loved by Kyoto locals and tourists for a long time. Anyway, what exactly is anmitsu? Anmitsu is a Japanese sweet made from Azuki red bean paste topped mitsu-mame jelly. Because of the light flavor of the red bean paste, the anmitsu from Tsukigase has an elegant and refined flavor. The anmitsu is not the only popular dish, Tsukigase also serves shaved ice in the summer, zenzai in the winter, and have a myriad of seasonal desserts available. Some popular desserts such as anmitsu and mitsumame can be taken away. Enjoy one of these special desserts in a quiet cafe after having fun shopping at Takashimaya department store.
