This old-style tea shop sells the best Japanese tea in Kyoto. Its matcha (powdered green tea used in tea ceremonies) makes an excellent and lightweight souvenir. Try a 40g container of wa-no-mukashi (meaning ‘old-time Japan’) for ¥1600, which makes 25 cups of excellent green tea. Ippo-dō is north of the city hall, on Teramachi-dōri. It has an adjoining teahouse.
