Wagashi (Japanese Sweets) / Tea House
Lunch: ¥3,000 - ¥3,999
Fill your tastebuds with the purest of all Japanese sweets from way back in the 16th century.
Believe it or not, Kawabata Douki has been open since the Muromachi period, dating back centuries. Founded by an insolvent samurai, this confectionery shop has been selling goods to the Japanese Imperial Palace ever since. There is no better place to load up on historic Japanese sweets. Their specialty products include sweet dumplings, and wagashi wrapped in bamboo leaves known as suisen chimaki. Made fresh with premium ingredients, these sweets have to be consumed within a few days after being produced. On top of that, Kawabata Douki only has very limited supplies for each type of wagashi, so don’t miss your chance at tasting the purest, most delicate Japanese sweets in the whole country.
