We went here as a thing to do and purchased a whole cake and a whole apple pie. We went first thing in the morning to avoid queues. Our cheesecake cake fresh from the oven whereas the pie was prebaked. We sat down and had a warm slice and it was ok. Not my style of cheesecake. A lot of... More

Read a lot of reviews and recommendation on this and decided to give it a try even though I am not really a cake lover. The full cake is JPY $650 and it is so delicious that I had almost half of it!

The size is just perfect, my wife and I ate a whole one each, because of how fluffy it is it doesn't feel heavy. Try them just out of the oven ;) Staff is very friendly and courteous. Definitely you MUST stop by when visiting Osaka!

You will know you find the right place when you hear bells ring and you see someone stamping cakes that just came out of the oven. When it is warm it jiggles and it is soft. It is more a egg cheese cake than just a cheese cake. I will say it is not a sponge cake but it looks... More

Whenever the bell rings. It means fresh yummy fluffy soft Japanese cheese cake. Fairly priced and a full cake is easily eaten by three people. Looks large but it so soft out melts away.

Freshly baked cheese cake that comes out of the oven very 15minutes. My Wife and I had the warm ones and cooled ones. You have to finish it within the day or it will turn sour. If you are in a rush, there is a separate counter to buy the cooled ones.

This is a cheesecake like no other. It is perfect. American Cheesecake is delicious, but dense, sweet and rich. Rikuro's version of a cheesecake is super soft, fluffy, and light, almost like a steamed sponge cake texture (but softer). It has the perfect amount of moisture to give it a custardy mouthfeel towards the center of the cake. It's not... More

Fresh out of the oven and still wobbly. Not too sweet. Very soft. Its not too big in size, we finished 2 full cakes across 4 days (even got one for the plane!). Try it hot out of the oven, and try another one after its been in the fridge for a couple of hours. It tastes different. Both a... More

We were in Osaka and specifically went in search of Uncle Rikuro's cheesecake. Google maps was no help but the local policeman directed us. The cheesecakes are just as they appear in the videos and we were lucky - it was a very short lineup. There were a number of people waiting for takeout but we were able to go... More

The restaurant offers an eat-in option: a small area within the outlet to sit down and eat a slice with tea/coffee. To eat the cake slice while it's still hot is incredible! The cake and cheese feels like a cream emulsion in your mouth.
