Chikiriya tea shop
Situated in the center of Kyoto, our main shop stand in the Koromonotanacho district, the same district that saw the birth of the Chikiriya brand 450 years ago. Even today, the district is still very much steeped in the traditions of Kyoto.
During the Gion Matsuri, the awe-inspiring floats from all districts in Kyoto go down the main streets of the city.
The float of the district, the Takayama float, was partly destroyed in the 19th century and hasn't been part of the Gion Matsuri parade since then. Recently, Chikiriya has joined and taken an active part in the Recovery of the Takayama Float project, a local initiative aim to restore and rebuild the Takayama float. Thanks to this initiative, the float is due to parade in the 2022 edition of the Gion Matsuri, a first in 196 years.
