Nostalgic Japanese café by the Ninei-zaka Street
Kasagiya is a Japanese café that opened in 1914. Surprisingly, their menu has hardly changed since then. A famous Japanese painter, Yumeji Takehisa (1884-1934) was one of Kasagiya’s regular fans. Their popular Sanshoku Hagi Mochi is an assortment of three kinds of rice cakes (with sweet red bean paste, white soy bean paste (soy bean powder for summer time) and smooth red bean paste). Kyoto Zenzai (Kyoto-style sweet red bean soup) with the rice cakes baked over the charcoal fire on the traditional oven is also recommended. The red bean paste uses only the highest quality beans from Tanba in northern Kyoto. They take over 3 hours to cook the beans over the old hearth. People feel relaxed and nostalgic with the gentle taste of their handmade rice cakes. Try the Kyoto Zenzai (650 yen) containing a piece of baked rice cake topped with salted Japanese herb for additional flavor.
