Founded in 1689 by Hanbei Tamaoki,
Hanbey-Fu is a shop in Kyoto that specializes in “fu,”
a nutritionally rich traditional food derived from wheat flour.
“Fu” has evolved as a distinct part of Japanese culture,
especially in Kyoto where it figures centrally in its cuisine.
It can be enjoyed in a variety of dishes and is arranged to reflect Japan’s four seasons,
while adding color and vibrance to the table.
At Hanbey-Fu, we want to ensure the traditions represented by “fu”
continue to be passed down from one generation to the next.
Kyo-fu is the trademark of Hanbey-Fu.
Since our founding 330 years ago, we have carefully sourced the best ingredients and employed time-honored techniques to create Kyo-fu that brings a smile to all who try it.
Our main store is located near the bank of the Kamogawa River
that runs through the center of Kyoto.
Make yourself at home as you relax and enjoy views of Kyoto’s traditional houses and gardens,
in a momentary escape from your daily routine.
At Hanbey-Fu, we place great importance on the concept of "Omotenashi,"
making sure to always offer the finest Japanese hospitality.
We also strive to pass down “fu” and the rich culture of Kyoto and
Japan to future generations and those who visit us.
We look forward to meeting you.
