かさぎ屋の氷宇治shaved ice



Kasagiya, a traditional sweet shop with an elegant atmosphere.


We had tea at Kasagiya, which was established in 1914 and is said to have been frequented by Takehisa Yumeji (a Japanese painter).

The store is decorated with Yumeji’s works, so be sure to take a look.

Kasagiya is recommended for


・People who like Japanese sweets

・People who want to enjoy a leisurely cup of tea in an atmospheric restaurant.


Even though the restaurant is located near Kiyomizu-dera Temple and has such a great atmosphere, tourists don’t seem to notice it.

Even if you go on weekends, you can easily get in.

What we ate at Kasagiya


かさぎ屋のお茶welcome tea


かさぎ屋の氷宇治Shaved ice covered with green tea


I had shaved ice with green tea on it (Uji Koori 650 yen, tax included).

The shaved ice was not too sweet and the matcha was delicious.

かさぎ屋の京都ぜんざいKyoto zenzai


My companion had the “Kyoto zenzai” (650 yen, tax included).

It is a Japanese food made of beans (mainly azuki) sweetened with sugar.

It is often eaten with rice cakes, Shiratama dumplings, or sweetened chestnuts.

Reference: Wikipedia

Kyoto zenzai had rice cakes in it.

There were few tourists, so we were able to relax.
