Less crowded than right in shijo street in front of the Yasaka shrine. We came at 4pm on Saturday. Only one person in front to order. We ordered the maccha tiramisu and the tall maccha parfait. The tiramisu is creamy and sweet, five out of...five. My tall glass parfait is at times sweet, bitter, crunchy, jello-y, mochi-y. It scores 5 for variety though each component may only have 4. Do not miss this one. Right across from the Starbucks on the small hill.More

As we ambled down Sannenzaka, a charming old pedestrian street, from Kiyomizu Temple, we came to this matcha dessert place and decided to stop. Its traditional front gate and posters advertising a variety of matcha sweets, from tiramisu to cold drinks, beckoned. Customers filled the...ground floor, sitting at standard tables as well as by a big communal table covered with glass that allowed a view of myriad Japanese items displayed beneath. These included combs and fans. Upstairs, I saw a few vacant tables, but we decided to sit outside at a tree-shaded table in the lovely front garden. My friend held the table while I went inside to place an order and pay for a matcha soft serve. It proved to be cold, delicious and refreshing on the hot, humid day. We enjoyed the lovely respite as we watched crowds on the street moving slowly down the hillside.More

I was sooo excited about the matcha here! However, the box of tiramisu was just a box of liquid cream, my husband ordered an iced sencha tea and received a hot tea. When he showed them the receipt, they rolled their eyes and gave him...a glass of ice...to go with boiling tea. Needless to say it tasted awful. That’s 1609yen better spent elsewhere unfortunately.More

I am italian but honestly I have to say that the matcha tiramisú is really DELICIOUS! The matcha latte in the version hot and cold are also both very good. The local is nice and they have a little refreshing garden.

The parfait and tiramisu were the reasons we went here, and it was amazing! No wonder this was place was never vacant. There were no lines but there was a steady stream of people buying here. Great place to chill after visiting kiyomizu-dera temple. The...bathroom was clean too.More

We saw this place on Youtube and looked for it when we went to Kyoto 2 weeks ago. It really lived up to expectations. The matcha tiramisu was to die for, as well as the other matcha products we tasted. The ambiance was also very...old Kyoto, which made it all the more authentic.More

I remembered this place from a YouTube video I saw a few months before we left and didn’t think much of it. We came across it by chance and decided to give it a try. If you like Matcha this is the place for you....I tried the matcha tiramisu and absolutely loved it. It’s like nothing I’ve ever had before. In addition they have ice cream, drinks and all sorts of other matcha treats. They also offer outdoor seating at this location.More

If you LOVE matcha desserts, this is certainly the place to be. Their tiramisu is to die for, that comes in a kawaii little wooden crate. My toddler ordered the soft serve. The serving was quite huge, and it comes with a little surprise at...the bottom (check it out). We arrived there after trekking Kiyomizudera, so I highly recommend to spend your money here versus other soft serve stores in the area. You get nice seats, nice view, at a price at par with the rest.More

This is my second visit in 3 weeks. After my first visit I have travelled to Tokyo, Shinjuku, Hakone and Osaka and I cannot find similar maccha tiramisu anywhere else. Please would you start a franchise in Sydney, Australia. :-) Still as yummmy second time...as the first.More

This place is incredibly popular for locals and tourists alike. There are lots of different matcha desserts to try including matcha tiramisu. Recommend for people wanting to try matcha for the first time and for those diehard matcha fans.
