List of cafe in Higashiyama-ku
This is Kyuemon Ito in Gion Shijo, a teahouse in Uji, Kyoto, that offers new values of tea while cherishing the traditions inherited from the Edo period.
The place is located in the downtown area of Gion-Shijo. As you walk down the busy street, you will come across a store with a quaint Kyoto-like atmosphere. The store has a long history dating back to 1860, when it was established as a retailer of Uji tea, tea utensils, powdered green tea sweets, cold sweets (powdered green tea ice cream, etc.), and a coffee shop.
Oh, isn't this place home? That was my first impression when I visited the cafe. I had been curious about this cafe on Hanamikoji in Gion, Kyoto for a long time, and this time I finally had the chance to visit.
