Lonely Planet review

At Kasagi-ya, on Sannen-zaka near Kiyomizu-dera, you can enjoy a nice cup of matcha (powdered green tea) and a variety of sweets. This funky old wooden shop has atmosphere to boot and friendly staff – which makes it worth the wait if there’s a queue. Highly recommended. It’s hard to spot – you may have to ask one of the local shop owners.
