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 branch, not the original Uji one).
If you love green tea and matcha, you will feel absolutely blissful here, and somehow, you'd fit in that extra dessert even after you are full (typing from experience here...)
This restaurant is located on the north side of Uji, arguably the 'less' touristy area, and you'd probably feel you'll be going out of your way a bit to reach this place. But it's worth it :) Get one of the green tea soba dishes (our favorite is the zarusoba), and get the desserts. Any dessert. Then perhaps, squeeze in an extra order of another type of matcha dessert ;)
The shop also sells various matcha/green tea inspired snacks, teas, and alcohol/sake/wine. Try the green tea wine. Beautiful.
