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

Bustling but organized. We arrived mid afternoon and decided to wait even though there is a 12 people line along the stairwell. We were glad that we waited the 15 minutes. The cold green tea soba and dessert combo was perfect and delicious. My husband...More

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...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...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.

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
