Larger than the average dorayaki, the shop offers a white and a black bean paste variety. Popular as souvenirs and gifts, they often sell out.

    We arrived by walk in Asakusa from Ginza, and I has saved this place on my map, so we decided like good hobbits to have a second breakfast at Kameju. We saw a big queue, but my girlfriend said that...

    Tokyo Chuou-ku Ginza 4-13-17 Takano Building 1F
    A cafe located behind the Kabuki-za (theatre) in Ginza, Chuo City, Tokyo. In addition to coffee and other drinks, the shop YOU serves cafe standards such as Napolitan spaghetti, curry, and sandwiches. The cafe's omelet rice, in particular, has become its signature dish-sometimes lines of people will form out the door waiting just to enjoy the ketchup rice and perfectly half-cooked, fluffy omelet, still runny on the inside, served on top. The cafe's food dishes are also available for takeout.

    We really liked the food here. It’s very simple but delicious. The place is very small and unfortunately they allow smoking but luckily we were near the aircon so didn’t feel it as much.

In addition to its own regular menu, the cafe also serves limited time items created in conjunction with the museum's special exhibitions.

    We tried to have lunch here and the lady seating people was very mean so we left without having lunch. Such a disappointment. Bad service is not something you find in Japan very often.
