Situated at a 2-min walk from the famous tourist spot in Mie, Ise Jingu shrine, Teahouse Tasukean is a popular cafe, run by Senokuniya. "Senokuniya" is a fabrication company of rice cake, Kamiyomochi, which is one of the specialty of Ise. The building of this tea house is a renovated, old warehouse built in 1934. That is why it has a nostalgic atmosphere. Inside you can taste Japanese sweets, including "Kamiyomochi" and "zenzai (sweet red bean soup with rice cake)" and Ise tea from the Prefecture Mie. On top of that, you can also purchase souvenirs. I hope you will pass by when you visit Ise Jingu Shrine.

Japanese sweets made with no additives
Teahouse Tasukean serves sweets made without any additives. A variety of amazing sweets made of carefully selected ingredients, including red beans from Hokkaido, natural mugwort, mochi rice made of refined brown rice. Therefore, the color and the smell of sweets are all natural.
Specialty of Ise made of natural mugworts
I strongly recommend you to try "Kamiyomochi" (400 yen) which is a popular set menu of "Kamiyomochi" made of natural mugworts and Ise tea from Ise region. The red bean paste inside the "Kamiyomochi" has slightly sweet and elegant taste. It goes so well the bitter taste of Ise tea!
Limited menu that you can only taste here!
"Miyukimochi (3 pieces)" (220 yen) is also very popular! In fact, you can only taste it in this restaurant. "Miyukimochi is made of "Kamiyomochi" with bracken-starch on top of it. There is no red bean paste inside the rice cake, so it is a great choice for those who don't like red bean paste.
