We had read about matcha cafes and decided to give this a go. After a 40-minute wait (Sunday afternoon at 2.20) we gradually worked our way up the stairs and into the first floor restaurant. Service was efficient but lacked charm, and it all appeared...More

Popular Japanese green tea dessert restaurant known for green tea flavored ice cream, sponge cake, jelly drinks as well as long queue. It tasted pretty well but the question is whether it is worth while waiting for quite a long time & it’s not cheap.

We had planned to have tea on the day when we visited Gion but because it is so popular, the queue was too long for us to wait. Hence we made a special trip back the next day just to have our parfaits at their...More

Went here after reading all the reviews. Matcha ice cream was smooth and rich, matcha soba and parfait were pretty to look at but tasted average. We were surprised that they are cash only even though desserts cost >800 yen each. Also they have a...More

My friend and I went there on Thurs morning and NO waiting time. I love Tsujiri Parfait and especially its hoji-cha jelly. I am definitely coming back when I visit Kyoto again.

Aahh Tsujiri... where to start? The cafe itself is located along Gion, converted from a traditional tea house. Tsujiri is rather unique in the sense that the ground floor is completely different and separate to the rest of the cafe, in that it focuses on...More

Best warabi mochi ever tried. Hojicha ice-cream is surprisingly good too. Matcha ice-cream, castella are all good but expected. Matcha pudding is worst among all sweets.

京都の八坂神社界隈は、多数の土産屋などの店が立ち並んでいますが、ここはその代表格となる喫茶店と言えるでしょう。そのため、平日・休日問わず混雑が続き、特に休日の昼下がりともなれば、だいぶ待たされてしまうことは覚悟しなければなりません。もしこのお店で京都ならではのスイーツを堪能するのであれば、開店直後に食事を済ませた後で、祇園などの周辺を散策するのがいいでしょう。一方で、観光客が比較的少ない冬季は、他の季節に比べればややスムーズに利用出来ると思います。 昔からある店であるにも関わらず、店内は至って清潔。ウッドテイストで落ち着いた雰囲気で、お馴染みである宇治の抹茶を練りこんだパフェを堪能することが出来ます。いくらか追加料金を支払えば、バニラアイスやクリームを抹茶に変えることも出来ます。その分、見た目は完全に緑になり、人によっては見た目が悪いと感じるかもしれませんが、そこはお好みで。他の喫茶店の同程度の量の価格と比較すると、やや高いです。 As you know, there are many shops, restaurants and cafes near Yasaka Shrine and Gion. Among them, this may be a representative cafe. Therefore, this cafe is crowded with tourists everyday. Especially on holiday afternoon, perhaps you may be forced to wait for...More

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
