Sweets and foods in Kyoto
There are too many choices of sweets and foods in Kyoto. I picked some shops where I had visited more than three times.
Daikokuden Honpo produces seasonal sweets, Waka Ayu (summer season), Japanese Rolled castella with rice cake, Castella, Cookies and fruits jelly. Seien is a Japanese style cafe next to the shop serving Kohaku Nagashi, cold jelly with syrup.
Yaoiso has about 140 years history to sell fresh fruits. Fruit Parlor Yaoiso is a cozy cafe where we can enjoy fruit desserts, cakes, parfait, sandwiches and fresh juice.
Hanbey-fu produces Japanese wheat gluten and its head office serves a traditional Japanese course lunch.
The head office is a very old Japanese style store and you can experience an old Japanese merchant atmosphere.
Sawai Shoyu Honten was established in 1880 producing various kinds of soy sauce products.
In the Sawai’s head shop, near Kyoto Gosho, you can see their traditional tools used to make their soy sauce. There are many choices of soy sauces, rice crackers, dressings and their other original goods.
