Lonely Planet review for Kasagi-ya
At Kasagi-ya, on the Ninen-zaka slope near Kiyomizu-dera, this funky old wooden shop has atmosphere to boot and friendly staff. It's a great place for a cup of green tea and a Japanese sweet to power you through a day of sightseeing in Higashiyama. Matcha tea with a sweet costs ¥700. It's hard to spot; you may have to ask someone in the area to point it out.
