Tomy 103 is located on the basement floor of the Feeeal, a commercial complex, and is the place to go to eat delicious oyaki made with Uji green tea matcha from Kyoto and local red bean paste.
In addition to oyaki, you can also buy soft-served ice cream and parfaits? Our reporter ate an oyaki here before and was impressed by the freshness and the authenticity of the matcha of their matcha oyaki.
Thus, she naturally had high expectations for their matcha green tea parfait (500 yen).
Just by reading the description of the matcha parfait on the menu, we can't help but imagine how delicious it would taste.
Aaaand what is it going to taste like?
Our reporter, Miya, is willing to have a taste of the parfait for us !
The Uji matcha green tea sauce on top of the soft serve ice cream tastes amazing!
The soft serve ice cream and matcha go perfectly well together. To our writer surprise, there is also a lot of matcha underneath the ice cream and the dumplings.
From the start to the end of your dessert, you can feel the matcha’s rich flavour.
This is truly a must for matcha lovers.
The chewy white dumplings were also delicious.
Let us repeat this: if you like matcha, this is a must.

Kibana no mori, Tsuboya CAFE Bunran
CAFE Bunran is located in Tsuboya Kibana no Mori.
The food here tastes good, the cafe has a good atmosphere and is reasonably priced. With those three conditions satisfied, you may understand that our reporter appreciates this place !
This cafe’s silk soft sundae is a delicious soft ice cream topped with a "Kibana" galette.
The sundaes are available in 5 flavours: white chocolate, chocolate, strawberry, caramel and sweet bean paste. All of them look delicious, don't they?
We recommend the anko red bean paste flavour to people who prefers traditional flavours.
The soft ice cream is topped with green tea powder and red bean paste.
The velvet-like texture of the soft ice cream and the mellow flavour of the anko are the perfect combination.
The cornflakes at the bottom of the cup were crunchy and delicious.
It was so delicious that our reporter finished her dessert in no time. This is a sweet that we can eat again and again.

Miura Ayako Memorial Literature Museum’s annex, Cafe Hyoten Lounge
The "Hyoten Lounge" is a café in the annex of the Ayako Miura Memorial Literature Museum.
This is a place where our writer wanted to go for a long time but haven’t had the chance to until recently.
Her target was the “Forest Ice Cream” (450 yen), made with sweet bean paste from Ikkyu Daifukudo. It is a sweet in which you can enjoy the combination of grained bean paste and the rich, milky vanilla.
The café in the lovely literature centre is new, clean and offers a quiet, relaxing atmosphere.
The mug in which this ice cream is served is exclusive to the café. But it is also available for sale in the shop.
The ice cream’s vanilla flavour is strong and rich.
The red bean paste is made with red beans called "Shumari" grown in Biei and mixed with sugar from Hokkaido.
Without being overly sweet, the red bean paste has the just right amount of gentle sweetness.
