Enjoy Kyoto’s oldest geisha district’s famous sweets with your five senses
This shop was established in 1908 amongst traditional ochaya (the place where customers are entertained by maiko & geiko) buildings in Kyoto’s oldest kagai district (where geiko/maiko live & work), Kamishichiken. Since then, it has been providing Yusoku-gashi (a type of sweet especially made for royal rituals) and sweets for the tea ceremony as well as a variety of other sweets all made with quality ingredients. Among their wide selection, the seasonal Nama-gashi is the most delightful. Delicate colors and shapes are created by skilful artisans and appear almost too beautiful to eat. Their popular items are Natsu Mikan, made of whole Japanese citrus fruit, and Renkon Mochi, a cake made with lotus starch and agar as a solidifier. Oimatsu offers sweets for customers to enjoy the seasonal events and nature.
