Enjoy sophisticated Japanese sweets at the café overlooking the beautiful garden
Toraya Karyo is situated on the west side of the Kyoto Imperial Palace. Toraya is one of the long standing Japanese sweet shops providing not only their famous yokan (red bean sweets) and nama-gashi (sweets used in Japanese tea ceremony) but also kuzukiri (clear jelly made from kuzu plant starch powder cut into noodle-like strips and eaten with brown sugar syrup), oshiruko (sweet soup made with red beans and rice cake) with wasanbon (fine grained Japanese sugar) which are all carefully prepared using only high quality ingredients. You must not miss their seasonal specialties, such as green tea anmitsu (small cubed agar jellies with sweet red bean and other toppings) and yuzu anmitsu - the original sweets at their Ichijo shop.
