Right next to Himure-hachimangu Shrine, there is Himure-chaya, a famous traditional Japanese confectionery shop run by Taneya.
You can enjoy tea time with Japanese sweets here, and having lunch is also recommended. It feels great to have a meal at the outside terrace on a fine day while viewing the precincts of the Hachiman-gu Shrine. The Japanese cuisine with many small bowls is neat to look at and the price ranges from ¥1650 to ¥5500. Depending on your appetite there are 4 different sets to try.
