二年坂/三年坂 (Ninenzaka and Sannenzaka), where to get Yuzu powder, Kyoto Japan




I have to quickly update where i got the yuzu powder and pickled sakura because a lot of readers waiting for me to advise the locations, hehehe. Today i share with you where to get yuzu powder.

After visited kiyomizu-dera 京都清水寺, we heading down to 二年坂/三年坂 where both sides of the small lanes with all old traditional Japanese houses converted into shops or restaurant, and this is where my shopping started ...

Also try to get this green tea cookie roll, this was the best cookies we had in Kyoto Japan.
I did not see this cookie selling in Osaka, so my advise try to buy here but do not need to check other places..if other places do have, the price will be almost the same.

we chanced upon this shop selling choux..

We bought matcha ice cream with choux, the ice cream was good, creamy ,smooth and strong matcha aroma, but we were quite dissapointed with the choux, it was soggy!

I try to log into their website but failed. I can only show you their trade mark.舞嫏 from this plastic bag.

Luckily i did not throw away this map..Look for "Yuzu" for shops selling yuzu powder, shop selling "muachi & green tea cookie rolls". Also see "Stop Here" for which bus stop that you should stopped in order to get to 清水寺 and  二年坂/三年坂.

Hi Sonia,
Love your pictures. I was wondering how does Yuzu powder taste? Never tasted before but from what you have made with it (Yuzu honey Castella) I can tell it is really yum. Thanks for sharing where to get the Yuzu powder, I will keep in mind the next time if I go to Osaka must go to this place for good stuff and free sampling...LoL
