Convenient location. Green tea everywhere

The restaurant is located inside the Kyoto station. Very convenient location. I ordered a green tea cold soba noodle set and a green tea jelly parfait with black honey. Both were good. The parfait did not taste sugary but it was expensive for a dessert(over 1000 yen). Very popular shop. May need to... read more

"Nakamura Toukichi" is one of traditional Japanese Green Tea House, the main shop locates in Uji, Nara. Without going to Uji, you can try its Maccha Jelly by buying it at shop in 3rd floor of department store "SUVACO" which is in front of the west ticket gate of JR Kyoto Station.

This place is within the Kyoto station complex, hence its generally crowded. We had to wait for almost half hour to order our matcha flavoured miso and gelato dessert. The best part is that the flavours, though quite alien for an outsider, is just correct to appreciate the taste.

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
