Good Dorayaki but not great.

The dorayaki from this shop are fresh and without any preservative. The dorayaki also larger than normal dorayaki that you get elsewhere and you can eat whole red bean.

wagashi-traditional Japanese sweets I visited this place waaay back in Dec. 2014 to pick up some dorayaki for my host brother, who's a huge fan of wagashi. I'm not a huge fan of wagashi; 95% of it involves red beans in some form, which I like, but it's just not WOW, you know. I will say that this is THE... More

We instantly recognized this as a cool, high quality place. They sell traditional sweet bean based desserts. We tried several different pieces, and they all tasted great.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighborhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
