Hourandou 峯嵐堂, Kyoto, Japan

RATING: ★★☆☆ – GOOD   |   PRICE: $$ - AVERAGE

If you’re spending a day in Arashiyama and you’ve for time to spare for a snack and a tea break then we’d suggest you skip the insane lines at %Arabica and make a bee line to one of the best Warabi mochi cafes in the area. Hourandou 峯嵐堂, specialized in handmade, hand cut warabi mohci with varying flavors and has been a local staple for well over 100 years. 

This may be a little off the beaten path form the main touristy streets but it is well worth the extra 10 minutes’ walk. A set with hand-whisked matcha is well-priced and the quality is second to none in the area.
