Cha no Ikedaya

Recommendation by Lemi

In the chaos of Shinjuku station, you may notice a lucky few holding soft serve cones with matcha twirls. These are just some of the green tea treats from Cha no Ikedaya, a convenience store selling various teas and delicacies. They’re stationed outside of the West Gate as they’ve been since 1945. The shop’s owner brought his tea expertise to Tokyo from Kawane, Shizuoka, where he worked in the tea business for 10 years. While you’re here, you might as well stock up on some green tea leaves!
