A traditional Kyoto shop leads Kyoto’s sweet culture
This shop was opened in 1755. Including the most popular choice, Unryu, they offer beautiful Japanese sweets expressing the Japanese four seasons. Ryuho-kan, a Kyoto sweet museum, is next door and displays historical materials and tools related to not only Kyoto sweets but also to all kinds of Japanese sweets. They also try to restore as many things as possible: tools for making sweets, old documents, containers offered to the Imperial family, and the works of Tomejiro Okina who devoted his energy to training the younger Japanese sweet makers. In the tea ceremony room on the first floor, enjoy a bowl of Japanese tea in a casual and relaxing atmosphere.
