Try the Green Tea Swiss Roll at Arashiyama!

A dessert store close to Arashiyama Station

"ARINCO Kyoto arashiyama main store" is located next to Randen Arashiyama Station. ARINCO is known for its swiss roll. When you think of a swiss roll, what do you imagine? The swiss roll sold at ARINCO is probably something you have never tried.

A dessert perfect for sightseeing

This Swiss roll is made to eat while sightseeing. It is a Swiss roll popular not only among Japanese tourists but also for tourists overseas. The Swiss roll is made of a soft sponge with rich green tea cream. It is covered with green tea powder and black beans.

The soft roll and smooth texture

There are many other flavors other than green tea such as chocolate and vanilla. It is a great dessert to enjoy while walking around the areas of Arashiyama, and many people enjoy its rich and soft taste.

Try the popular Swiss roll

This is the ARINCO's famous Swiss roll. It is only sold at the store at Arashiyama, and it comes with a knife and fork.
Eating the Swiss roll at the riverbanks of the Katsura river is also a recommended way to enjoy Arashiyama.

Enjoy great dessert at the cute store

They are known for their Swiss role. Usually, when we think of a Swiss role, we think of a sponge cake filled with whipped cream.

However, the Swiss role we will introduce today is complexly different?

The New Way of Eating a Swiss Roll

ARINCO product This product from the photo above can only be bought at the ARINCO’s main store.

The reason for its unusual shape is to allow customers to eat while walking around various tourist destinations.

The Green Tea flavor is especially popular and is loved by people all over the world.

The soft sponge matches perfectly with the rich green tea cream. The green tea powder on top adds to the richness, and the black bean inside also plays a very important role in the roll.

Eat the whole roll on the spot!

ARINCO swiss roll This photo above is their most popular product. It can also be bought at the main store only, and what’s special about it is it comes with a set of knife and fork.

When buying a whole roll, we expect it to be something to take home or to be a gift, but at ARINCO, that does not seem to be the case.

One recommendation from me is to eat it near Katsura river. Eating a whole green tea swiss roll at the riverbank of Kyoto’s famous river will be unforgettable memory.
