Kyono-Yosuga, Colorful confections packed in a wooden box
This Japanese confection shop is marked by its large billboard and curtain over the entryway. It was founded about 200 years ago. The interior of the shop still retains the atmosphere of the era of its founding, and the tools, items, and decorations from that era are on display. Its famous "Kyono-Yosuga" is a wooden box packed with colorful confections. The delicately hand-crafted confections are very delicious. They only stay fresh for about a week, but you can divide a box among a few members of your group to remember your trip by. It is fun to eat them while reflecting and talking among yourselves.
Kyono-Yosuga / ¥3,600
Enjoy dried confections and bean paste confections that show signs of the four seasons. The contents of the box change about once a month. *Prices vary by size and box type. Wooden box: ¥3,600│¥4.400│¥5700 and up Paper box: ¥1,100│¥2,400

It is fun just to soak in the atmosphere inside the shop. You are allowed to take pictures of the products, but please do so quietly so as not to disturb the other customers.

This Japanese sweets shop was founded over 200 years ago. The noren dividers in front of the shop are orange and have the shop's turtle logo on them. This shop's specialty is their "Kyono-Yosuga" box of dried and bean paste confections, also known as "four-and-half tatami mats box". The square box is made of Japanese cedar, and inside the box are cute seasonal traditional Japanese sweets. You can only buy these confectionaries in Kyoto, so if you come here I recommend you buy this box!
