Home to our main store, Teramachi Nijo is a cozy neighborhood full of the various charms that Kyoto has to offer. As you browse through antique shops and art galleries, the Kyoto Imperial Palace is only a 5-minute walk to the north of our shop on Teramachi Street. You can also head east and within moments reach the scenic Kamo River, where a scattering of friendly gulls can be seen playing in the water and along the bank.
In December 2010, Ippodo opened the Tokyo Marunouchi Store, its first street-front store apart from the main Kyoto store. The new shop provides a venue for customers to fully appreciate the delights of Japanese green tea, experiencing its allure and depth of character and enjoying the wide variations in flavor that can be produced by altering the way it's prepared. The Tokyo Marunouchi Store aims to help more people come to know the charms of Japanese green tea. Next time you're in the neighborhood, why not drop by and treat yourself to an authentic tea experience?
