This establishment maintains the Japanese tradition with care and respect. This is a great place to try Japanese traditional sweets with “matcha” green tea. The service was excellent. I tried a sweet served in the skin of Yuzu lemon. The taste was delicate and floral. All sweets are made in the shop. This shop exists from a long long time ago. It is well worth a visit.

A Japanese sweets shop very near Katsura Imperial Villa. Really good and refreshing shaved ice desserts on a very warm day! They also have several Japanese sweets and light meals. Friendly and fast service, too.

Mugite-mochi was valued as a snack during rice planting. A rice cake with sweet bean paste sprinkled with soybean flour, it is a well-known specialty of Nakamura-ken, a Kyoto confectionery located near Katsura Rikyu Palace.

The name "Mugite-mochi" comes from the fact that the confectionery was paid for with the harvested wheat.
