Just minutes from Shijo-Kawaramachi you will find "Daigokuden Hompo Rokkaku".
Established in 1885, this historic Japanese sweets store has been around for over a century.
In the adjacent Japanese cafe called "Seien" you can try their famous Kohaku Nagashi, made with Japanese agar and syrup.
Served in different flavors every month, this dessert is visually beautiful and melts right in your mouth.
Tea is delicious in this season, so the flavor for May is "matcha".
Take a break while traveling in Kyoto, and enjoy a cup of rich, fragrant matcha syrup topped off with adzuki beans.
