Had the most gorgeous meal here! We ordered the matcha soba noodle set, as well as a sweetened matcha latte. As someone who has never been a fan to give it a proper go because of its bitter taste, definitely give it a second chance!...More

The place was relatively crowded when we entered and we had to put our names down to get a place in the queue. Waited for approximately 30-40 minutes but time seemed to pass quite quickly since we could shop around the store for matcha souvenirs...More

The waiting time to be seated can take up to around 40 minutes, but you can look around the store during that time so it works out fairly well if you're not in a rush. The sakura macha parfait I got was a little over...More

Ordered yokubari matcha parfait (972 yen) and the Sakura parfait (972 yen). The ice cream is very little but comes with so much various type of jelly cubes. IMHO it is just an average dessert not to to die for. This restaurant is about 5...More

It is easy to get to -- only a few minutes walk out of Uji station. The place is kind of small, so you might encounter a long queue, which we did. But then we had a table in the garden, which is even better...More

Incredible! If you are in Uji, make sure you give this place a visit. Everything matcha-ey about this place is top notch, from their soba to their desserts. I actually prefer this than Nakamura Tokichi Honten (although to be fair, I did visit Tokichi's Kyoto...More

Itohkyuemon is the best place to eat when visiting Uji. You can come here for a full meal or just for dessert. The non-desert position of the menu is limited; you can get hot or cold matcha soba noodles, which are tasty. There are lots...More

Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi
Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist
attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens,
temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for
strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine
itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the
mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers,
picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the
