Kyoto life Blogs

GTK would like to introduce the real Kyoto life by GTK bloggers. Some of them migrated from their countries
to Kyoto, and want to share how to enjoy the Kyoto life. These blogs are quite useful for visiting Kyoto, and also
for people who hope to live in Japan.

Gion delicacy!

Delicious sweets at Gion in a spring day..

We had a Kyoto sweets break yesterday. Do you know a white something in a green lacquer bowl? And a black somtehing next to a green it shoyu soy sauce?
Udon noodle?
No! this is a kuzukiri noodle sweet which is a traditional Japanese cold sweet made from the roots of kudzu vine. The black sauce for kuzukiri is a kuromitsu made from a brown sugar.
It is soft and tastes naturally sweet. If you ate this special kuzukiri, you couldn’t buy a simple kuzukiri at a convenience store!
Enjoy this unique delicacy at Kagizen in the heart of Gion.
(100m east from the corner of Shijo st. and Kawabata st., the north side of Shijo street)
