The place is in the downtown in Gion Shijo. When going through the street with many people we can encounter a shop with a quaint atmosphere that is very Kyoto-like.

It’s Gion Tujiri.

It offers Uji tea, tea equipment, Match sweets, cold sweets (Match ice cream etc.), coffee, and its history dates back to 1860.

Oh, I go for something cold.
In such situation, we can have Match ice cream at Tujiri.

And on the second and third floor in Gion Tujiri main shop, there is Saryo Tujiri which offers a variety of delicious sweets in an atmosphere with Japanese motif that is typical of Kyoto! We can go to this place by elevator in Tujiri main shop as well as by stairs.

At any rate this place is wonderful.

The Gion area is the most Kyoto-like downtown area in Kyoto!

Yasaka Shrine crowded with people

The area is also home to Yasaka Shrine, Chion-in Temple, and Maruyama Park, and the Hanamachi area is very crowded with people. If you want to take rest, go for delicious sweets and Kyoto-like sweets while walking in such Gion area, why don’t you visit Saryo Tujiri?
