If you are visiting the Shijo-dori area then don't miss this great little green tea dessert place! prices are very reasonable and the portions are generally quite big! (especially the sundaes!) the menu has pictures so it was fairly easy to order. the desserts are mainly served with green tea ice-creams, mochi and other traditional japanese sweets made with glutenous...

Have been living in Japan for 4 years, trying a lot of green tea desserts but this place was the best of all. I'm so glad I made it there before leaving the country. Tsujiri is AWESOME!!! Everything looks so good that you'll surely have a hard time to choose. We came there for desserts but finally ended up quite... More

We managed to try the green tea dessert after 20 minutes wait. It was worth queuing. The restaurant deco was modern and clean, service staff was friendly. Most importantly, the green tea ice cream was good.

I'm still dreaming of Tsujiri. This place served the best green tea parfaits ever! The best I've ever had. Hands down. Their menu is HUGE and everything on it looks so delicious. It took me a very long time to decide what I wanted because I literally wanted everything. The parfaits are awesome. I just need to reiterate that again.... More

Visited here twice. The first time we were here, we were too late. Their restaurant were close. So we didn't manage to visit the upstairs' restaurant. Had no idea that they closed so early on a Sunday night. Gion were pretty must deserted by 10pm, unlike on a Saturday night. We tried their matcha flavored soft cream aka soft serve... More

After a ramen dinner & wandering around the markets & shops, we decided we needed to cap off our evening (and Boyfriend's birthday) with something sweet. We had seen a long line for this place earlier in the day, and decided to try it. And were promptly blown away. I had the Sakura parfait; Boyfriend had one of the many... More

We finally tried this famous dessert on our 3rd attempting for queuing. The first time too long and 2nd time can't make it by its closing time. However, I carry my body at the edge of sickness of cold and queue with friend for over 30min to finally make it. It has wide variety of desserts. I choose its signature... More

We heard about Tsujiri from a local Japanese cooking teacher, and quickly spotted this green tea restaurant upon our arrival in Gion, thanks to the snaking queue of locals and tourists! We ordered 2 types of parfait (price: 1050 and 1250 yen) which completely exceeded our expectation. Service was superb, the interior design was made to excellence, everything was above... More

Do you like green tea ice cream? If the answer is 'yes' and you're in the Kyoto area, go--right now--to Tsujiri. Don't be put off by the long line or the high prices. Tsujiri's desserts are well worth the effort and expense. Choose from a variety of green tea parfaits that include a mix of gelatin, green tea cake, mochi... More
