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
You'll find our New York store tucked away on a side street of Manhattan—a little piece of Kyoto right in the heart of NYC. We established this first Ippodo location outside of Japan to introduce new international customers to Japanese green tea's nuances and pleasures.
Our shop's intimate design and atmosphere evoke the Japanese tea experience in a calm setting removed from the din of New York City. Whether you are an everyday tea drinker or a complete newcomer, we are eager to answer your questions, give advice, and help you find new ways to enjoy our expansive catalog.
At Ippodo Tea New York, you can purchase our many high-quality teas and utensils and order from our menu of carefully crafted takeout teas. Our shop is also located on the ground floor below Kajitsu, a Michelin-starred Japanese restaurant serving shojin cuisine.
Come to our New York outpost to experience authentic Japanese tea.
