Story & Recommendation
For all your French crepe needs in Kyoto, you have Crepe Shop Sanjiya Kawaramachi
When you think of crepes, most of the people in Japan think of Shinjuku in Tokyo, but did you know that you can have great crepes in Kyoto too? And because we’re in Kyoto, you can, of course, have matcha crepes too! And not only can you have the crepes topped with matcha, you can also enjoy matcha crepes with the dough itself containing matcha! So everything is green! One of the specialties of this crepe shop is their prices, as they’re very low, and start at only 330 yen. You can also customize your crepe, so if you want to add something to it, or want to have it made from the green matcha dough, that’s no problem.

Tiramisu with soft serve crepe
Tiramisu with soft serve crepe / ¥480
Tiramisu is a delicacy by itself, but when you can have it with soft serve and in a crepe, it’s even better. The way the soft serve goes with the tiramisu is exceptional, and this is made even better because you’re eating a crepe!

Natto & rice crepe
Natto & rice crepe / ¥450
Natto is fermented soybeans, and when you take natto, rice, green onion, and seaweed paste, you have something beautiful in your hands. This crepe surprisingly is pretty good, especially since you get a generous amount of mayo with it. Recommended for those who want to try natto in Japan!
