A best-kept secret among the locals in Gion, Kagizen Yoshifuza was established as long ago as the mid-Edo period, and and has been making traditional Kyoto sweets for hundreds of years. The shop is quaint but elegant, showcasing a ceiling-to-floor view of a well-manicured garden.

The atmosphere is tranquil, serene and one is instantly transported to a different headspace from the crowded streets of the busy geisha district outside.

We begin our meal with two cups of roasted tea and some sweets.

And before we knew it, our desserts arrived. We ordered the Chilled Arrowroot Noodles (¥1000) with brown sugar and warabi mochi (¥1000).

Let’s start with the warabi mochi. This Japanese sweet is a jelly-like confection made from bracken starch and covered in kinako or soybean powder. It’s often served with a side of brown syrup.
