Love this place. Some of the best parfaits in town. I always persuade my companion to get the Castella matcha parfait whilst I order a smaller variety or red bean soup with danko (mochi balls) or grilled mochi. The parfaits are huge so you'll want to go hungry. Expect long long queue on weekends and public holidays. We've had to... More

Tsujiri is one of the well known matcha tea houses in Kyoto. I bought a piece of matcha cake and some matcha latte tea powder. Recommended.

A must visit for matcha lovers. The iced matcha drink was the perfect thirst quencher on a scorchingly hot and humid day. It had the right balance of bitterness and sweetness and a nice grassy flavour. It was also not too sweet. There will be a line, but the wait is worth it. Venturing inside, you will see various matcha... More

Walking in here is like entering Matcha heaven. We wanted to get a quick grab and go snack and notice at the entrance different Matcha options. The soft serve was already sold out but thankfully we opted to get the Matcha Mochi.

I'd read a lot about Tsujiri before heading to Kyoto and how it was one of the most famous dessert shops in Gion, so I was determined to visit and taste the matcha soft serve it's famous for. Because we went in the evening, it was less crowded and we managed to get a seat upstairs. I had the matcha... More

Me and my wife both likes green tea in any form and my favorite desert is matcha ice cream . At this cafe you can have whatever you want, desert wise, with green tea in it. Service are great, the matcha desserts mixed to perfection and the ice cream the best I have had in my life. Decent prizing and... More

I read the reviews and wanted to try this place, didn't want to queue so went less than 5mins after it opened, and it was still nearly full! Had a nice relaxed and quiet atmosphere though. Really fast service but didn't feel rushed at all. I didn't feel out of place being on my own and I really enjoyed the... More

Staying in Gion

Neighbourhood 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.
