Delicious fresh, giant sized pastries and sweet breads ! Long lines, but worth the wait. Must try when you are around the Senjoji temple area.

We have passed this store multiple times and they were always sold out. They have more than one locations. They have limited amounts everyday, so be sure to go early. You are unlikely to get one in the afternoon (that happened to us multiple times)....More

Given that Tokyo is a food haven and there are many other great bakeries, I feel this was overrated. Not that it isn't good, but it was only average to me. There is also a poster outside with many celebrities' endorsements. However I do like...More

We had read about this traditional sweet shop before our visit to Tokyo. It is well-known for jumbo-sized Melon Pans, a melon-shaped (but not melon-flavored) sweet bun. Apparently, Kagetsudo has 3-4 outlets in Tokyo. The one we went to is the one which is just...More

The main bread was the best. Second was cream cheese pie and 3rd place goes to apple pie. Good place for breakfast or dessert (if with ice cream).

This was delicious. It reminds me of the Italian tradition of serving gelato in a panettone. However, so much lighter... Highly recommended when you are in Asakusa. Maybe a little less cream cheese next time...?

Kids love it. Taste, crunchy, sweet, soft... It's good. Either plain or with ice cream are both good. It's good even in hot weather :)

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.
