Probably best place in town. Don't come too late (>6pm). Some items in the restaurant can be sold out. It's delicious and costs around 1000 yen

I was super excited to dine here after the rave reviews and recommendations online. And I'm glad I wasn't disappointed! To avoid queues, I arrived before 11am and luckily there was only a lone man and a family in the restaurant. The atmosphere was very tranquil, and the staff were really attentive. I ordered a parfait and a matcha latte.... More

After a long day of exploring Kyoto, we were excited to sit down and have a nice dessert. We arrived here to find a massive queue and decided to do some geisha spotting and have an early dinner before returning at 7pm to have an early dessert. 2 parfaits later, we were not disappointed. We even left with some green... More

We came here a few times during our trip so yes, we do like it very much. The different types of tea and desserts that they serve are always excellent. Service here is first class as well. The cafe is on the second floor but if you have a stroller or a wheel chair its no problem at all because... More

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!

They are waiting for Greantea shopTsujiri to escort them to get inside of their coffee shop, as they have so delicious Greantea Icecream. it is so famous and good that it is worth trying it... More

Staying in Gion

Neighborhood Profile
Gion
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.
