5 Best Kanmi-Dokoro (Japanese style cafes) In Tokyo



Have you ever visited Kanmi-dokoro, which means cafe that serves a lot of Japanese traditional sweets? If you are a big fan of Matcha, Anko or Mochi, you should definitely visit one of these Kanmi-dokoro that I’m going to introduce today.

1. Hunawa Honten

Do you know what are those colorful balls and the yellow sticks? The colorful balls in the front are “anko balls”, which are made of different taste of anko. The yellow ones in the behind are “imoyokan”, which are sweet potato paste. They are all colorful, so why don’t you give this to someone as a souvenir?

2. Naniwaya Sohonten

They has been making Taiyaki, which is a fish shaped pancakes with anko filling inside for more than one hundred years. Since their beginning, they has been using the same original recipe of Taiyaki. If you visit here, you can definitely enjoy the most basic but best Taiyaki in Japan.

3. Kinozen

The dessert in this picture is Matcha bavarian cream. It is a fusion of Japan and European dessert and that is why this sweet is loved even among young generations and many foreigners. The combinations of Matcha taste, anko, and whipped cream are great.
