Eirakuya

Delicate balance of “sweetness and salty” for the food culture of “Rice and Tea”

Eirakuya is a famous shop making Kyoto-style tsukudani (food boiled in soy sauce) and sweets, which is located in the northeast of Kawaramachi Shijo in the city. Since its establishment in 1946, they have been providing products specializing in sweet and salty flavors that match with “rice and tea” which is essential food culture of Japan. Eirakuya is known as Kyoto’s specialist of “sweet and salty flavor.”  The most famous are “Hitokuchi (bite-sized) shiitake mushroom” and “Kohaku”, both of which are also popular as gifts for someone. Their manufacturing policy is using only the best ingredients sourced in Japan, and that tradition has never changed until today. They have a café on the 2nd floor where people can try their popular “Raku Matcha Parfait” and “Uji Kintoki Gori (shaved ice).”
