Green tea soft serve is common, no special place required. Many places simply buy pre-prepared single serve pots that they put in an extrusion machine/dispenser to change from a tub to a cone.

It's literally everywhere, but I do remember having some nice green tea ice cream at the kinkaku-ji.

If you just want a serving of green tea flavoured soft serve ice cream, then it's literally everywhere as mentioned. But if you are looking for something a bit more special I can recommend this place: www.giontsujiri.co.jp/saryo/menu/kyoto_gion/

If there's a queue/waiting time to get in, you can forego the cafe itself (on the upper floors) with its elaborate green tea desserts, and just pick up a serving of their excellent green tea soft serve from the shop downstairs. Last time I went there early and there was no waiting time to get a table.

We literally just had the best green tea ice cream ever at this place (copy/paste into google maps). Went for the green tea and milk one and it was heaven!

Tsujiri Kyoto Tower Sando, 721-1 Higashishiokōjichō, Shimogyō-ku, Kyōto-shi, Kyōto-fu 600-8216, Japan

The shops name is only written in Japanese but if you look at pictures on google maps you'll recognise it :) enjoy!

I will recommend Gion Tsujiri Teahouse. It is famous in Kyoto.

We tried the one near Golden Pavilion or Kinkakuji. For the price it is ok.
