This place is extremely popular so I would suggest you come early as there's going to be a queue. The dorayaki is delicious! It comes with red or white beans as the filling. The store opens at 10AM. I arrived at 1030AM and obviously there's...More

Normal dorayaki are about 150yen. This shop's are...I believe around 350-370yen?They come in red bean/white bean flavor. ふつのどら焼きより倍ぐらいする。 あんこ。。。黒と白。 The dorayaki pancake part is not the traditional dorayaki pancake...it's much fluffier and lighter, more like a chiffon cakey light texture. ふつのどら焼きと違って。。。 もっとふわふわ。。。 軽いスポンジケーキ・シフォンケーキっぽい They are...More

Awesome dorayaki! The azuki beans are cooked to perfection and it's not too sweet And the pancake is fluffy and moist And we went there at around 5 plus pm, so there's no queue at all

I was very lucky as the day I went, there was a typhoon alert so there was no queue at all. The service staff were really helpful and the Doriyaki, yummy! Best to eat it fresh and hot!!!!

My family and I queued for only 10-15 mins (rainy day, two hours after lunch) so we were lucky. I'm usually not a fan of red bean but even I had to admit it was delicious! My toddler could not get enough of it. I...More

地元なんで、何かと必要になれば買って利用させてもらっています。 ここはもう雷門の斜向かいに位置していますし、いつも混んでますね。 従って浅草に訪れた際は、ここでの購入はくれぐれも後回しにせず、先に購入しておくことを薦めます。少しばかり面倒でしょぅが、時間掛けて浅草を堪能された後に帰宅またはホテルに戻る前に購入してから…なんて考えていると売り切れとなる事もあります。午後になるとちょっと不安かもしれません。 どら焼きが有名です。黒(小豆餡)と白(白花豆餡)の2種類です。 大抵の方は、黒をメインに購入されていますけど、個人的にはこしていないインゲン豆が残っている「ホクホク」した感じの白が大好きです。 皮は独特です。パンケーキのように"ふわふわ"した感じで他店のどら焼きのような表面が上品に焼けた若干カリっとする感じはありません。その分空気が入ったような"ふわふわ"の感じはこの亀十さん独特の商品でしょうか。 「松風」も黒糖の皮に餡を包んだ商品で、どら焼きの次にくる商品だと思います。 予約も可能なようですから、とにかく一度足を運んでください。 This shop main food is 'Dorayaki'. which is two small pancakes with bean jam in between. The beans jam has two type jam. one of jam is call 'Kuro Ann'. which is mean made from red bean....More

You can't miss this shop which is 1 min from the Asakusa Station. There's a long queue almost all the time. It sells the best Dorayaki in my opinion and it is well worth the wait. Definitely don't settle for second best. They also sell...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
