Omotesando Street (平等院表参道)

The Omotesando Street is about 300-meter stretch approach to Byodoin Temple. It is lined with tea shops, eateries and souvenir shops where you can spend some time exploring this quaint street.

There are many tea related products which you can try such as “dango” dumplings, soba noodles or ice-cream.

Looks messy but it is Match on crushed ice, red bean sweet paste, dango dumpling, matcha tea and jasmine tea.

I would recommend that you do this on your return walk back from Byodoin Temple so you can take a break for a snack or lunch before you are onward to the next stage of your journey.
