Melon pan has no melon sauce inside so still prefer the ginza one. But the melon pan with ice cream and their melon ice cream cone was very good. Queue looks long but moved quite fast.

Places like this often times get a lot of tourist hypes without the real substance to go with it however, this place is the real thing. The melon bread is out of this world. I've never had such silky soft mouth-water bread like this. It's...More

Hidden away in a little arcade in Asakusa, this IS the place to get your melon pan. Hot out of the oven, they are absolutely delicious! They also have apple and strawberry pies, ice cream, and shaved ice. We had a melon pan every morning...More

Walked past when exploring the area and noticed there was a big queue around lunch time. Returned later to find they were putting out a fresh batch of the buns. You can't beat freshly baked buns and it smelt so good! The queue was gone...More

Very crispy on the outside (were poured some sugar on it), and soft in the inside! 200yen per bun, but 500yen for three buns! Worth it to fill your empty stomach! Once you arrived at the main Sensoji temple, the stall is located at the...More

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

I believe they are okay for vegetarians. They probably contain butter, eggs and milk.
