Cafe in front of Heian Jingu Shrine
I had a matcha shaved ice parfait at a cafe near Heian Jingu Shrine in Kyoto.
Shaved ice is a Japanese summer food, perfect for the hot humid Japanese summer.
Matcha is another must-have item in Japanese sweets, and the bittersweet taste of matcha is very delicious in harmony with the sweetness of the sweets.
The parfait was served with matcha-flavored ice cream, matcha-flavored shaved ice, sweet red beans, and matcha-flavored cake, a delicious mix of flavors.
There are several cafes, restaurants, and stores along the approach to Heian Jingu Shrine, making it a perfect place to stop by after visiting the shrine.
Heian Jingu shrine
Heian Jingu Shrine was planned to be as a centerpiece of the National Industrial Exhibition held in Kyoto in 1895.
It was to commemorate the 1,100th anniversary of the relocation of the capital to Kyoto(Heian-kyo.)794.
The shrine pavilions were modeled after the Chodoin, the main building of the inner palace of Heian-kyo, and were restored to five-eighths the size of the original.
It’s completed in 1895.
If you come to Japan in the summer, you should definitely try the matcha-flavored sweets.
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
