Had a great time!

Theres is always a queue. But the parfait alone is worth the queue. And you get 30% discount to buy the goods downstairs.

Whenever I'm in Kyoto, I will definitely pay them a visit. I was so looking forward to have their matcha soft serve but only to find out that they do not sell them in winter time. I was pretty shocked! I seldom eat their parfait as the portion was too huge for my appetite as I'm not really a dessert... More

Bought home 2 bags of Uji tea. The taste is superb. Even leaving tea leaves in pot for a while, the taste is still deliciously mellow. It is said the desserts there are the best of the best. Alas when I visited there, it was 6 celcius outside and I'm too frozen to try matcha ice cream. Totally need to... More

This place is hard to find if you don’t know Japanese. I had to ask around a little bit to find it. But when I did, it was worth it! I had the Shirakawa meal which included matcha soba and shiratama parfait. It looks simple but very good and filling!! The service was great, I really enjoyed it there. I... More

The food here is all matcha based and is really quite good. It is a little on the expensive side so be prepared to spend at least 800 yen per person

Me and a friend went to this cafe on a very hot day. We were quite anxious about locating this place, given how it is hard to find shops in Kyoto if you dont know how the outside looks (this shop was located in a residential area and it looked like the shop was developed from a previous house) and...

Once you get there you might have to wait on the stairs to the 2nd floor, as the place is really popular and usually crowded. To make your waiting time less boring the staff will bring you the menu so you can go through it, watch the pictures, the ingredients (especially important for people with allergies or vegan/vegetarians). The atmosphere... More

I took the most completed ice cream - around 1 200 yen, yep a bit expensive..- but it's totally worth it! If you have to test something with matcha ? This is the right place, plus the staff is so nice and you smell green tea as soon as you get in! Be careful about the queue : could be... More

The ice cream parfaits here are AWESOME and are definitely worth the wait. I ate a lot of great ice cream in Japan, but this place was my favorite. I especially recommend the seasonal Sakura parfait if you are there in the spring. Tsujiri is easy to find; it's on the main street in Gion and there is almost always... More

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...
