I loved this specialist sweet shop and cafe so much I went for matcha and a sweet three times! The traditional sweets are exquisite - the ones I chose included a sweet shaped like a narcissus, and a camellia.

The line moved quickly. The crowd were mostly locals. The service was brilliant. The ‘moist Japanese sweet’ was OK (but looked brilliant). Green tea was excellent. Free tea top ups were appreciated. The arrowhead noodles and brown sugar sauce were presented in an ornate green...More

Locals come here to hang so you know it has to be authentic! I don't know about everyone else but I seldomly heard locals engaging in daily conversations. Oddly, I really longed for that. I guess it's because I was visiting touristy places? Anyways, I...More

We arrived on a Friday afternoon at around 16:00. We only had to wait for a short while before a table was available. Saw a lot of people eating some kind of flat translucent noodles. I thought it is an odd time to have lunch....More

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
