Went here because its the model store for Tamako Market. There is no queue when we went there. There's a lot of mochi disolayed. We only tried the mame daifuku , unfortunately we did not like it but overall a nice experience.

When I go to Kyoto, I always come this place. They have many kinds of Japanese sweets including their signature Mame-Mochi. The balance of black soy, anko, and mochi are exceptional! I also love their chestnut version especially in the fall. No matter what, you...More

Their signature mochi, Myodai Mamemochi, is great! It's authentic, and not too sweet. Also, the beans give it just the right consistency. Delicious! Most days you'll find that you're not the only one hunting for delish mochi, and the queuing might seem daunting. However, it's...More

I first came in the afternoon, but I had to come again very early in the morning to get their limited autumn mochi with Japanese chestnut. But the 30-minute waiting was paid off. I can recommend this shop for those who want to try real...More

I was attracted by the long queue in front of this shop when I firstly passed by. Demachi Futaba has been established for more than 120 years and they make very traditional mochi with some seasonal specialties. For example, they have yuzi flavour mocha during...More

After 40 minutes of waiting in line, it was worth it. Never had so good mochi in my life. Even if you don't know much japanese or speak it at all you won't have any problems. The staff knows little bit of english. Or use...More

We were definitely the only non-Japanese people in line which means you know it's going to be good but also presents some challenges. We got by with just pointing and holding up the number of fingers we wanted of each "flavor" which means we guessed...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
