tea house used as a resting place for pilgrims

Nikenjaya (Nakamuraro) in Gion is a long-established teahouse where tofu dengaku originated.

Nigenjaya is located inside the torii gate of Yasaka Shrine. Dengakudofu, which is said to have originated here, has been a specialty of the store since its establishment in the Muromachi period (1333-1573).
