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...

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
