Ippodo Tea is sold worldwide through our online shops. You can also find our tea in our several store locations, from our original shop in Kyoto to our Tokyo store, and our storefront in New York City.
Kyoto Main Store
Our main store in Kyoto is where the Ippodo story began in 1717. This shop is located near the old Imperial Palace grounds, on Teramachi Street, which runs north and south through the center of Kyoto. In this historical tea shop, you can find our full selection of limited and standard teas and utensils, displayed under wooden beams, next to the treasured clay tea jars and ancient shelves of previous eras.
In the shop area, let us guide you through our teas, how to brew them, and how to choose the perfect gift or souvenir. At the Kaboku Tearoom, enjoy a curated menu of teas, with careful guidance. Grab some tea-to-go, to enjoy while you stretch out in the wide Imperial Palace grounds park nearby, or while you shop the boutiques neighboring us on Teramachi Street.
Our staff is eager to greet you here in Kyoto, whether it’s your first Japanese tea experience or your hundredth.
Tokyo Marunouchi Store
Our Tokyo Marunouchi Store opened in December, 2010, as the first standalone Ippodo location outside of the main Kyoto store.
Near Tokyo Station in the Marunouchi district, this store is a hub of Japanese green tea in the middle of the city. An evolving neighborhood, Marunouchi hosts boutiques of luxury brands, cafes, and world-class restaurants, in addition to the offices of many global companies.
We designed our Tokyo store to have a serene atmosphere where our guests can focus on the aromas, tastes, and nuances of a cup of tea. On your visit, you can relax at our Kaboku Tearoom, where we curate a seasonal menu of teas and accompanying sweets. Browse our teas and utensils on display in our store area, while our staff guides you through the full selection. And, grab a tea from our takeout menu—to accompany you the rest of your day in the Tokyo metropolis.
Ippodo Tea New York
(Temporarily Closed Sep. 2022)
From its opening in the spring of 2013, the Ippodo New York Store played a crucial role in connecting so many customers to the joys of Japanese tea, as Ippodo's sole location outside of Japan.
This location closed on September 18th, 2022, but currently we are making preparations to establish a new outpost in New York City. The opening of the new location will be broadly announced on this website and on Ippodo social media accounts. Until then, we eagerly await the day when we can greet you at the new New York Store!
