The location actually is NOT in the Istant department store but if you ask the service counter, they will show you a very clear direction in a map. That means too many people have asked them about it. We ordered a lot and everything is...More

オススメは、宇治店にはないまるとパフェ、しかもほうじ茶味です! 和スイーツが大好きで東京も京都もいろいろ網羅していますが、ここのほうじ茶のまるとパフェが1番好きです。 すごーーーく並びますが、京都滞在中は、毎日通います。 そしてお土産でゼリィやスイーツを買い込み、新幹線や自宅で楽しみます。 東京には進出しない戦略なんですかねぇ。 I am Japanese sweets mania, and I hereby introduce my absolute no1 favorite, Maruto parfait Houjicha (roasted Japanese tea) flavor. Hope they will open one in Tokyo near future.

If you can find it (upstairs near West gate) this place is definitely worth a visit. Reasonably priced considering. Green tea everything under the sun. Even the green tea cake was yum. English menu and staff speak good English also.

The green tea dessert, with green tea ice-cream, green tea jelly, mochi and red bean paste, is simply divine! I can eat this over and over again! Love it!

The restaurant is located inside the Kyoto station. Very convenient location. I ordered a green tea cold soba noodle set and a green tea jelly parfait with black honey. Both were good. The parfait did not taste sugary but it was expensive for a dessert(over...More

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub,
Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining,
and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with
tourists and local business travelers, making it a
competitive location for ever-new commercial
structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and
trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains.
Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and

They don't take reservations and no dress code. Not sure about Christmas menu.
