Teahouse Kinkakuan

Machiya café [teahouse Kinkakuan] that conveys the charm of Gyokuro.

The tea house is an 80-year-old machiya (traditional Kyoto townhouse). The owner is Keigo Masuda, whose grandfather is Juichi Yamashita, known as the leading expert on hand-rubbed gyokuro. He has been familiar with fine teas since he was a child, and when he took over the family business in his 20s, he invented Japanese afternoon tea to convey the deliciousness of Kyotanabe-produced gyokuro, powdered green tea, and Japanese black tea.
