This shop provides convenient bite-sized dumplings you can enjoy while you walk
This veteran sweets shop was founded eighty years ago. It’s located at the corner of the major crossroads in Gion. The landmark is the white walls and the display of "Gion no tsuki" dumplings arrayed in a glass case. Popped onto skewers, these make the perfect grab-and-go food. Do give "Gion no tsuki" a try. The red bean paste has a mild sweetness and will lift up your spirits after a long day of walking.
