Being the World famous tourist attraction, Asakusa is full of amazing gourmets which can be bought and eaten while you tour around the area. Here we will recommend you from typical Japanese snacks to the latest trending food stall, which will be a perfect company for you sightseeing!

Dorayaki – “Kameju”

If you are a fan of the famous Japanese animation “Doraemon”, you must be familiar with the traditional Japanese snack “Dorayaki”, where a red bean paste is sandwiched by two mini flat castellas. “Kameju” is ranked as one of the top three Dorayaki stores in Tokyo. It is located near the symbolic Kaminari gate which makes it accessible. The pancake-like castellas matches in good harmony with the sophisticated red bean paste, which is understandable for why there is always a long queue in front of this store.

【#浅草ぶらり 】① 浅草をぶらり! そういえば、ちょうど1年前の1月最後の日曜日も浅草ぶらりしてた(笑) まずは浅草寺でお参り!何度目の初詣。 毎回祈ることは同じ…。(笑) その後、仲見世通りのお店であげまんじゅう!プレーンとゴマを。 他にももんじゃ味とかカレー味とかあって気になった! パクリ…おお、揚げたてじゃないのねえ。冷めてる感じ。要は、よく実家で出てきた、ホットケーキミックスで作った手作りドーナツの味。それに美味しいあんこが入ってる感じ。 美味しいけどー、これで1個130円は高いし、わざわざ買う必要も無いかもーと思った(笑) でも、お茶とは合うね! 揚げたてだとまた違うんだろうなぁ〜 . . #浅草#浅草九重#あげまんじゅう浅草九重#あげまんじゅう#揚げまんじゅう#あげまん#浅草寺#仲見世通り#仲見世通りで食べ歩き#雷門#グルメ#食べスタグラム#インスタグルメショー#グルメ好きさんと繋がりたい
