Matcha Place near Kyoto Station

September is nearly gone, and real autumn is just around the corner

but matcha sweets is welcomed to anyone in any season (If I'm not wrong), right?

This time, I would like to recommend 茶匠 清水一芳園 (Kiyomizu Ippoen) close from National Museum of Kyoto.

They have cold sweets, hot sweets, and even food menu.

I tried to go there with J-hoppers Kyoto staff, Sahorun, but we gave up because there were too many people waiting. So it's actually a good idea to go there during Kyoto's low season like now.

Enjoy Kyoto's autumn with great sweet:)

Food Sample :)

Have you ever been to Kyoto tower since they renewed ?
If not, you should go !

Since they renovated, it is very fun place to go especially 1st floor (or 2nd floor for American English speaker) !

On that floor, you can try to make something special and I personally recommend to try food samples.
You might have seen them at the entrance pf some restaurants in their display.

These are not real one, it's all made by plastics !!!

It is pretty sure difficult to make such like them but at least you can try basic, simple and easy one at Kyoto tower :)
It might be good idea to try as a part of memory from Japan :)

Day & Time : 9 am - 9 pm *last entry till 8pm
Place : inside Kyoto tower on 1st floor
*advanced reservation preferred
