I'm sure you'll find something that will give you a deep sense of Kyoto's traditions.

Our philosophy is "Onkochishin", and we always manufacture Japanese sweets with a positive attitude. The name of our store, "Niomon", originates from "Chomyoji Niomon", which means "to purge evil spirits and bring happiness to all who visit our store".Our Kyoto sweets, born in the Yamashina Yatsuhashi Village, are a gem of Kyoto's tradition and atmosphere, and the culture of elegance that established the world-famous "The Tale of Genji. We hope you will enjoy our sweets and be reminded of the elegant world of the Heian Dynasty.

Taste, aroma, and texture are the three key elements of the traditional taste.

We are particular about our creative confections, which are elegantly sweetened with our excellent traditional techniques, and have the three key elements of "taste, aroma, and texture". While preserving our traditions, we also focus on developing new confections that not only have nostalgic flavors. A jam that combines milk caramel and traditional Yatsuhashi, and a baked sweets that sandwiches the nostalgic cinnamon rice crackers with chocolate, a representative of western-style confectionery. We are challenging ourselves to create confectionaries that our customers have never encountered before. Please enjoy to your heart's content the traditional flavors created by Kyoto's artisans with all their soul.
