This is one of the most famous tea shops in Uji.
They serve matcha-based dishes, light and refreshing. There may be a long line around lunch time, and you have to write your name and memorize the number: the waitress will call you when your turn will come. They call numbers also in english, thus no worries about not understanding.
The food is delicious, I took the matcha soba menu, and it was definitely worth it! I particularly liked the information paper they give you to explain different ways of enjoying your dish, according to your taste!
Definitely a place to visit!

A lovely tea shop selling green tea products and light meal and dessert. We ordered the Matcha Parfait, and it was excellent. There are many layers in it including ice cream, tea jelly, crispy rice, berry, jam, etc.

Waiting one hour for my Q and 30 mins for the order....totally 1.30 hours. Once you had the first bite of Maruto Oarfait (Matcha), you forgot about your waiting time. The tea house itself is simply beautiful with a small Japanese garden.

The cosy restaurant serves wonderful Uji matcha and lovely desserts as well as savouries. We were particularly delighted with the desserts as we have a sweet tooth. If you are in Uji do have a bite there.

Take JR train from Kyoto to Uji is very convenient. The train is also green to match the matcha. This restaurant is close to train station and you can enjoy the traditional green tea and food. They have tea tasting as well. If you would like to dine in, please be sure to get the ticket and it usually wait for half an hour.
