Jomyoji English tea garden bakery

blogged

 

Having sampled a number of supposedly English tea shops in Japan and found them universally disappointing (salty cakes!), we had, for years, avoided the English garden and tea shop in the grounds of Jomyoji, one of the top 5 most important Zen temples of Kamakura, opting instead to sample their matcha in the Japanese tea house. We finally visited the English garden this week. It is delightful, with roses, pleasant coffee, sweet(!) cakes, and an attached bakery. It is the best we have found, although expensive.
