Sweets in Downtown Kyoto

This classic old sweet shop, about 50m north of Sanjō-dōri on Kiyamachi-dōri, is a great place to get acquainted with traditional Kyoto sweets. Just point at what looks good and the friendly staff will wrap it up nicely for you. There’s no English sign; look for the traditional Kyoto exterior and the sweets in the window.
