Super nice place to have handmade desserts and chill. Beautiful interior that’s very cosy.

It feels like we’ve visited someone’s house and the host prepared desserts for us. We felt really well taken care of.

The desserts are super light and delicious. There are hot and cold desserts, perfect for any weather. I will visit again when I’m back in Nara. Loved it.

Although I’ve never eaten kuzu-mochi before so I cannot compare taste of it, I really enjoyed it! The kuromitsu was not too sweet and the meal was perfectly balanced with slightly bitter matcha🍵
