Price is now 250¥@. Custard inside was ok. Outside it was not crunchy hot. Meh, just like a cold churro filled with custard. And no line compared to few years back it was super long.

One of my favorite desserts on Harajuku's Takeshita Street! We got the ice cream and two croquant (custard and strawberry). You'll usually see a short line but it goes by fast. I think paying with cash is much faster than paying with card. The croquant...More

The tantalisingly, crunchy exterior contrasted the refreshing soft serve that erupted into my tight orifice. 😉

Tasty cream puffs with a crispy exterior and custard filling. Good - but I'm not a massive cream puff super-fan and these didn't convert me into one either, so for me this stop was not super memorable. They also sold ice cream which was really...More

Shibuya / Harajuku / Ebisu
There are countless opportunities to shop in the
Shibuya and Harajuku districts, especially in shops
that focus on Japan's "Kawaii" culture. The trendiest
areas are around Shibuya’s Center district, Harajuku's
Takeshita-dori and in Omotesando. If you need to
recharge from all the shopping, you can easily refresh
yourself in Meiji Jingu or Sasaki Park. In contrast,
Ebisu has a more grown up ambiance of calm and cool.
