Kyoto's Funahashi-Ya Sembei Store

Rice crackers (sembei or, in Kyoto, o-kake) are ubiquitous in Japan. The most famous emporium for these delicious crackers in Kyoto, Funahashi-Ya, is located at the west end of the Sanjo bridge. Founded in 1885, Funashi-Ya sells countless varieties from its picturesque Meiji period establishment.
