Take a seat in the café “Kayu Chaya” and watch precise work by sweet makers
Tsuruya Yoshinobu is a traditional Japanese confectionery shop that opened in 1803 and has served sweets to the imperial court and masters of tea ceremony. Their dignified main shop displays colorful seasonal sweets in the showcase. In addition to traditional sweets, newly created items are also popular such as the Fuku wa Uchi (auspicious roasted soy bean contrived by the 4th generation owner; available December to February 3rd), Kyo Kanze, originating from one of the pure water springs in the city, Kanzemizu, and Blueberry-mochi, a rice cake which includes fresh blueberries in the dough. There is a café on the second floor where you can try matcha green tea and zenzai (sweet red bean soup) overlooking a beautiful tea ceremony garden. Kayu Chaya is the place where visitors can closely watch how confectioners create beautiful Japanese sweets.
