Rakusho Tea House

Dec 8, 2016

Rakusho is a teahouse located on Nene no Michi, or Nene road, which connects Yasaka Shrine and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The teahouse is a perfect resting spot after your visit to the temple.

Inside, Rakusho looks like your average Kyoto teahouse – simple yet charming. But one look out the window, and you’ll realize why this place is so popular. It’s surrounded by a Japanese garden that’s so beautiful and serene, you’d think you’re staring at a postcard! And of course, the garden comes complete with a koi pond.

I ordered a warabi mochi (jelly-like dessert made from bracken starch) for about 700 yen and enjoyed it with green tea. It was delicious.

During the summer, many customers go there for shaved ice. Cool down as you relax and appreciate the scenery outside.

八坂神社から清水寺に繋がる"ねねの道"にあるお茶屋さん。

外見もいわゆる”京都のお茶屋”という雰囲気が出ており、敷地内には鯉が泳いでいる日本庭園があります。

草わらび餅(※700円程度)と、抹茶を堪能できますが、夏にはかき氷もあり、暑い時、涼しい店内で日本庭園を見ながら食べるのかき氷は絶品!

落ち着いた雰囲気と少しリッチな気分になれる”典型的な京都の雰囲気”を堪能できます。清水寺から近いので、帰りに寄ることもオススメです。

京都旅行の一つの思い出として、洛匠に行くのはどうでしょうか。
