Why don’t we make ourselves at home peacefully in enjoying tea and sweets.

It’s a café run by an old long-established shop for traditional Kyoto’s confectionery.
Located on the streets leading to TOGETSU-KYO, the famous bridge across the Katsura River, it’s almost three minutes’ walk from Arashiyama Station, Randen Railway.
Ten minutes’ walk from Saga-Arashiyama Station, JR, and twelve minutes’ walk from Arashiyama Station, Hankyu Railway.

It’s also close to Tenryuji Temple with a spectacular landscape garden in it and Bamboo Groves.

After all, the specialty of the café is Hon Warabimochi, made from sugar, water, and starch.
The starch comes from roots of genuine WARABI plant in the café.
The other cafes usually use cheaper starch such as sweet potatoes, tapioca, and so on.
Therefore Hon Warabimochi there is some expensive at 1,260 JPY, that comes with Hoji-cha, a cup of toasted tea.

They also have another popular set menu.
Maccha, powdered green tea leaves poured over by hot water and beaten with a bamboo whisk, and seasonal Japanese confectionery you can choose cost 1,050 JPY.

Although there are no less than 32 seats they have, people almost usually stand in lines for about more than 20 minutes until taking the seats.

Let’s enjoy the view through the window after sitting on the seats and placing some orders for the menus whatever you want.
You can find a small but wonderful garden outside consisting of trees, plants and a bed of moss.
That will really give you stillness and tranquility.
You never will get tired of gazing at the garden while you have a break with tea.
