    Tokyo Taito-ku Ueno 1-10-10
    "A Japanese confectionary shop located close to the Ueno 3 Chome intersection on Chuo-dori Avenue a four-minute walk from Okachimachi Station. The shop's name, literally ""Rabbit Shop,"" is derived from the fact the original owner was born in the year of the hare. This long-standing establishment continues to follow the same policy of ""superb flavor, low prices, and container recycling"" implemented when it first opened its doors in 1913. The shop's signature products are its dorayaki pancake sandwiches filled with sweet Tokachi azuki beans; and its kisaku monaka half-moon-shaped wafer cakes filled with smooth sweet bean paste. The shop's dorayaki have a crisp outer dough made with lotus flower honey and are counted as one of the three best dorayaki in Tokyo. As they are packed while still hot off the griddle, customers are urged to eat them as soon as possible."

    They make great dorayaki. This is worth the drive. Awesome stuff. You often see people eating it outside of the shop. Not able to wait until get home. If you’re around get one and try it out.

    A classic bakery west of Akasaka-mitsuke Station. Their famous rare cheesecake is made with rich cheese with a hint of fresh lemon. This popular cheesecake has not changed since the bakery began in 1976. Their choux-creams full of cream is also well loved. The bakery cafe uses antique furniture, and many people enjoy their cakes in the cafe rather than take-out because of it.

    Tokyo Shibuya-ku Jingumae 4-9-3 Kiyohara Building B1F
    The shop’s namesake shiawase no pancakes are rich and flavorful and topped with whipped cream made from extremely pure Manuka honey and cultured butter. Plump and thick, diners love their fluffy texture. The shop is very particular about its ingredients, and only uses eggs delivered by a specifically contracted farm, as well as carefully selected domestic wheat flour. Each and every pancake is made to order, ensuring you’ll enjoy the fresh made flavor. The Omotesando location can be rented out and also offers a party menu.

    Beautifully made pancakes but they tasted very eggy. The ice cream and syrup saved the taste but I wouldn’t eat there more than once. Slow service and a bit of a wait to get in. We all were served...

    Tokyo Taitou-ku Kotobuki 4-7-4
    A long-standing bread bakery founded in 1942 and located in Tokyo's Asakusa neighborhood. Renowned for its delicious breads which you can eat every day without ever getting tired of them, this popular establishment frequently sees lines of customers waiting outside to get in. The bakery makes only two kinds of bread- shokupan white bread and rolls. Only a limited amount of bread is baked each day, and the bakery frequently runs out of stock before closing.

    We heard of this bakery from a Japanese friend and decided to make a trip down Asakusa just for the bread. We didn’t know we need to make reservations so when we turned up nothing was left. We...

    This is a well-established wagashi (Japanese sweets) shop founded in 1884, and Ginza's Kuya monaka is loved by many including those that are cultured and their signature product of monaka is popular as a present for a special someone. Without using any additives they combine carefully selected red beans and sugar into a tsubushi-an that has a refined sweetness. Since the shop sells out of the entirely homemade treats, customers will need to make a reservation if they want to be certain of their purchase. Ginza Station is the closest train station.

    Tokyo Musashinoshi Kichijoujihonchou 1-1-8
    A Japanese confectionary shop located in the Daiya-gai shopping arcade which extends away from the north exit of Kichijoji Station. Osaza only sells two things: yokan bean jelly and monaka wafer cakes with bean jam. Even so, these two products are so popular there's a constant line of customers outside waiting to purchase them. The yokan, in particular, is made entirely by the hands of skilled artisans without the use of any machines, and many customers come back time and again to enjoy its delicious flavor. It's so popular, you usually can't purchase any unless you come very early in the morning, and fans refer to it as the phantom yokan. Osaza's offers two varieties of monaka filling-shiro-an white bean jam and azuki-an red bean jam, and you can buy mixed sets which include both flavors. These sets make great souvenirs and presents.

    This veteran anmitsu sweet shop has been operating since 1948. The name Mihashi comes from the three bridges that used to be on the approach road to Kaneiji Temple. While anmitsu is their specialty, they provide a menu of simple, old-fashioned Japanese sweets. A variety of seasonal fruits makes their periodic anmitsu a hit. The Ueno Main Store also offers light fare like oden hot-pot, sekihan red rice, and bean jams including kidney bean.

    This is a wonderful place for desserts with plenty of choices and at a reasonable prices. I tried something that I don’t know the name of but I was like a creme caramel. The flavour was pretty good...

    "This is the outlet store of ""Domremy"" that manufactures and sells sweets familiar in supermarkets and convenience stores such as mille crepes, souffle rolls and chocolate tarts. The taste and quality are the same as the ones that they sell, but the store sells products with slight defects including looking irregular or with broken crepes and roll cake at a special price. There is a dine-in space outside the store, so you can eat the sweets you buy right away. You can also select the box and pack goods as a gift."

    I can’t believe the variety, freshness and cost of this amazing shop. Very cheap to buy, and the taste is so good! A must visit location under a hotel and not far from the train station.
