Kyoto Sweets by Kagizen Yoshifusa

Kagizen Yoshifusa is a confectionery store in Gion, Kyoto, specializing in Kyo Gashi.
At Kajitsu, Kagizen will serve its signature products, including “Kuzukiri,” chilled noodle dessert.
It's made with high quality kuzu and water and served with black sugar syrup.
In Japan Kagizen serves Kuzukiri only at its shop in Kyoto because Kuzukiri loses its flavor in a short period of time.
This is the first time that Kagizen serves Kuzukiri outside the shop.
We hope you will enjoy this special summer dessert.

Kyoto Sweets by Kagizen Yoshifusa

Kagizen Yoshifusa

Kyoto was the capital of Japan for a long time in Japanese history.
Hence, most of the cultural developments took place and prospered in Kyoto.
"Kyo Gash" - Kyoto confectionery--was one of them.
The Japanese confectionery traditions were developed through the culture and the history of Kyoto in the Edo period.
Kyo Gashi is made with the highest quality ingredients while reflecting Japanese seasonality and various cultural elements.
Kagizen Yoshifusa is a confectionery store in Gion, Kyoto, specializing in Kyo Gashi.
It was founded in 1726. For centuries, it has provided its confectionery to the teahouses and restaurants in Gion, a busy commercial area in Kyoto.
When "Kuzukiri," a chilled noodles served as a dessert after a meal, became very popular in Kyoto, Kagizen started serving it at the store front.
It eventually became Kagizen' s signature product. Currently, it is served in a tea room located at the rear of the store.

The owner’s wish is that the guests will enjoy the gift from nature, which Japanese have cherished for centuries and that through the confectionery by Kagizen Yoshifusa they will appreciate the traditional aspects of Kyoto and Japan.
