Green Tea Desert Favorites

Nice dessert cafe near the old Kyoto Town. They are famous for their green tea and parfait. Definitely a must try and do stop when you visit the area.

I visited Tsujiri on a sunny day and it was very crowded with tourists. Still their macha ice cream is one of the best in Kyoto.

A little on the sweet side for me but I don't usually eat dessert. If I were to try again, I would go with a simpler dessert than a parfait. Something with just rice balls, jelly, and ice cream. However, if you love sweets, this is the place!

First stop every time I visit Kyoto! As they say, you've never been to Kyoto if you haven't tried Matcha. The Tsujiri Honten in Gion offers beautifully composed parfaits and other exquisite desserts. If you don't have a sweet tooth, they have matcha soba and udon as well. Do give them a try!

I first went to Tsujiri five years ago and since then I always pay them a visit when I am in Kyoto. If you love matcha, this is the place to be. Their matcha desserts are excellent, although they also serve non-desserts, like matcha soba but I always end up ordering the desserts. The parfaits are around 1,200 yen but... More

If you love green tea and ice cream this is the place to go. It looks so nice one could think it is plastic. But so oiishi since 1860.

All areas of Japan are famous for specific things. For Kyoto it's traditional sweets and maccha. (I write it with a c because that is how it is written in japanese, まっちゃ) This little café i located at the top of a staircase in Gion is the perfect place if you feel like trying every type of maccha dish.

Title said it all, even you don't like dessert if you are there go and give it a try...It maybe a bit tricky to find the shop even it located on the main road.

Staying in Gion

Neighborhood Profile
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
