Jouvencelle is a classy feeling café in the heart of Gion.

They serve a range of Japanese and Western-style sweets, perfect for a pit stop when you’re out geisha-spotting. We recommend the matcha fondue, it comes with a matcha chocolate dip and a range of small sweets to dip in it. When you’re done, the wait staff will even pour warm milk into the leftover matcha chocolate so you can drink it.
