There is a little steam bun stand next to Okutan iKyomizu (one of the oldest tofu restaurant in Kyoto) right on the top of Ninenzaka, on the way to the Kiyomizu temple.
The steam bun has a sweet stuffing of okara (soy pulp). The bun is delicately soft and fluffy. Complimentary tea is given with each order. The perfect snack on a cold day. There are benches available where one can sit, people watch while enjoying the steam bun and tea.
