Back alleys are usually associated with something negative, but in Nishijin, it’s actually quite the opposite. It’s because Kuma no mi dou Yakigashi exists here. The cute baked confectionery shop offers scones, cookies, tarts and more, which are perfect for snacks and souvenirs. What’s more, these sweet treats are handmade daily.
Kuma no mi dou Yakigashi sells 10 kinds of baked goods. They have seasonal products such as the Matcha and Cranberry Scones and Ichijiku and Blueberry Tarts and you can order fruit tarts according to your liking, especially if you have specific requests in terms of size, design, or ingredients.

The Chiffon Cake with Sauce and Whipped Cream is also available for dine-in
There are two tables inside the cafe where customers can dine in and enjoy special treats like French toast, coffee, orange juice, or other baked confectionery like the fluffy chiffon cake with sauce and whipped cream that is served on a plate.
Ms. Rena, the owner, opened this store after working at cafes and restaurants. What’s interesting is that the store used to be a hair salon but Ms. Rena and her friend turned it into a store of their desire.
