Kyokanmi Bunnosuke-chaya Kiyomizu-ten
Located near Kiyomizu-dera which is one of the major tour spots of Kyoto, Kyokanmi Bunnosuke-chaya Kiyomizu-ten is a sweets shop famous for its "warabi mochi (bracken starch dumplings)" made from bracken root starch. The bracken is one of the ingredients with which Japanese have been familiar for a long time. This shop's warabimochi has a distinctive texture and is mild and delicious with the slight aroma of cinnamon. Amazake (sweet fermented rice drink) handmade from malted rice is another excellent thing. They still make it in a traditional way inherited since their foundation. The shop is over 100 years old, full of Japanese taste, and popular among many foreigners.

Over One Hundred Years old Long-established Shop
With the concept not only to satisfy picky and stylish customers but also to remain rustic in a right way, this is a long-established Japanese sweets shop with a history of over 100 years. All of their various menus are made in a traditional way to draw the selected ingredients' tastes.
The Specialty, Meltingly Delicious Warabimochi
Meltingly palatable Warabimochi (490 yen) with an elastic and jelly-like texture is the specialty. The fragrant flavor of kinako (soy flour) and a slight aroma of cinnamon exquisitely match it. They use the quality-consistent bracken starch "Hon-warabi-ko (pure bracken powder)" from southern Kyushu.
Dainty Set "Kyo-gonomi (Kyoto's Favorite)"
Kyo-gonomi (Kyoto's favorite) (860 yen, tax included) is the set of homemade cold amazake (sweet fermented rice drink) and the specialty warabimochi. Amazake is alcohol-free, and anybody can drink, and it is made from rice malt, which works as an intestinal remedy and is effective against summer weariness. It is full of wisdom that Japanese have accumulated over a long time.
