Kagizen Yoshifusa is considered by many to be the best traditional sweet shop in Kyoto. Located on Shijo-dori in the heart of the traditional geisha and entertainment district of Gion in downtown Kyoto, it specialises in traditional sweets and Kyoto desserts. The tranquil tea room is the perfect escape from all the hustle and bustle of Gion. The delicate wagashi are served with cups of matcha green tea. If you like what you try, take home some sweets as a souvenir.
