This cake is made with only six ingredients: matcha, sugar, wheat flour, eggs, butter, and white chocolate. Baked using a traditional method, this delectable cake is a must-try for any traveler visiting Uji.

The matcha used in Chez Hagata’s sweets is of the highest quality and carefully selected by the owner couple. It is sourced from Uji, which is renowned for producing some of the best matcha in Japan. This attention to detail is evident in every bite, as the matcha flavor is distinct and bold, making for an unforgettable taste experience.

One of the most charming aspects of the shop is the warm and welcoming atmosphere, which is perfect for a relaxing break from sightseeing in Uji.

The shop’s regular size Luxurious, Freshly-ground Matcha Terrine is priced at 4,205 JPY, which may seem steep to some travelers. However, the quality of the ingredients, the time-honored baking process, and the unique matcha flavor make it worth every yen.
