It was a average taste you can fine from any convenient store. Don't expect anything if you want to give a try.

Dorayaki was never my crave but it was the 10min that sparks my curiosity. Yes, no doubt that the Dorayaki - a Japanese pancake with red bean - is available for only 10min daily at the Usagiya, from 9.00am-9.10am. The locals were already queuing when...More

They have a bunch of stuff there but it seems like most people go for the dora-yaki. And they were great and cheap (around a couple hundred yen). If you are in the area, you must go. The trip advisor marker is a little off,...More

Apparently this place is Tokyo's oldest and most famous dorayaki place and stocks are limited everyday. Our dorayaki was chock full of sweet, whole azuki beans, wrapped in a soft, pillowy pancake that is made fresh daily. Excellent. ¥205 a pop.

We instantly recognized this as a cool, high quality place. They sell traditional sweet bean based desserts. We tried several different pieces, and they all tasted great.

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
