Ippōdō Tea

In downtown Kyōto, Ippōdō Tea is an old-style tea shop that has been providing the finest matcha in Kyōto since 1717. There is also an adjoining teahouse where guests can directly brew their tea. The English-speaking staff will help you choose your favourite matcha flavour.


Shopping in Kyōto is a unique experience: huge department stores harmoniously blend with small, historic family-run stores. From high fashion to vintage stores, the city has something for all tastes and budgets.
