We stopped by the Nakamura Tokichi Kyoto Station while we were visiting Japan. This restaurant is a teetotaller’s paradise. As you enter, different aromas of tea and desserts assail you in a heady and wonderful manner. I loved the general ambience of the place and tried the Matcha flavoured meals along with my sister. The spaghetti was al dente and... More

Although it is in an isolated corner, the snaking queue endorsed the great desserts that it serves. The 900+yen matcha parfait is not too sweet and is of a comfortable size for tea time. It is a common sight to see people ordering double serving.

Nice concept of Matcha flavoured meals (from spaghetti to desserts), but pricey. A matcha dessert that I took costs 950 yen which was way too much. It is on the third floor of the station, at a small isolated section not part of the big shopping mall.

I didn't eat in the restaurant but opted for a green tea jelly cup to go. It had Azuki and rice balls in it and a cup like that cost ¥380. It wasn't very out of the world but it was quintessentially Japanese :) it was crowded even though I went quite late at night. Would love to try their... More

An interesting tea and desert menu. The food was well presented. Full of locals that ranged in age from school girls to grandmothers.

Opened since 1859, they had been serving green tea and related products since. they have everything from noodles to desserts. today I tried their dessert, since I had quite some green tea noodles. The glass as you can see is a layer over layer of fruit, green tea jelly, green tea cake, mousse.... excellent. I am sure this is not... More

Apparently this building has 15 levels, 11 of which are some sort of shops and restaurants, we managed to get to the 11th level by lift and the esclator and had to take more escalators to walk on the skywalk. Very impressive building of steel and glass. My wife went mad with taking photos in the day and at night... More
