Traditional Sweets, red bean desserts, arrowhead noodle. Must try in Kyoto. The sweetness is just the way I like, subtle and not overly sweet. The ambience is very relaxed, the staff are polite. What more can you ask for?

Nice place with many locals. They seem to enjoy the arrowhead noodles which taste strange to me with the brown syrup. Other sweets like the red bean with millet cake was yummy. But the arrowhead noodles are not for me.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko"
in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and
entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners,
Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with
gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the
streets on their way to and from work, where they fan
dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion
