Established in 1500s in Kyoto, Toraya has been serving traditional and refined Wagashi (Japanese confectionery) to people in Japan. They have stores that sell Wagashi, and some branches have "Toraya Karyo", a cafe space where you can try their kakigori, wagashi and other Japanese desserts like zenzai.


If you want to try traditional Wagashi, check out the following menus.
Toraya is really famous for their yokan. Yokan is a red bean jelly, usually in a cubic shape. It would be a perfect souvenir for your friends and family! They have different flavors too so make sure to check them out.
Anmitsu is a popular summer dessert in Japan. It has red bean paste, beans, yokan (red bean jelly), and some jelly. The one shown in the photo is "Matcha Anmitsu" which is a special menu in Kyoto Ichijo branch, and it is only available at this branch.
Their kakigori is also a must-try! Their green tea kakigori has white bean paste inside the fluffy mountain of ice. It also comes with chewy mochi!
All of their wagashi is very elegant and delicate, with fine details. It makes you feel calm and relaxed just by looking at them.

Have an authentic and elegant Wagashi experience at Toraya!

They have branches in many parts of Japan, and they have cafes in Tokyo, Shizuoka, Yokohama and Kyoto. If you happen to be in one of the cities or prefectures in Japan, you should definitely stop by and try their exquisite Wagashi!
