Most Delicious Taiyaki in Tokyo

Taiyaki is a classic dessert you must try in Japan. It is often sold in stands, and it smells heavenly as you walk by. Taiyaki are sweets shaped as a fish ("tai") often filled with red bean paste or cream. There are a multitude of seasonal variations to try as well, such as sweet potato, or chestnut.

Feel free to follow favy!

Taiyaki Wakaba

Taiyaki Wakaba is a very famous taiyaki shop near Yotsuya station. They are around since 1895, so if you're looking for a classic taiyaki, this is the plance! You can have it to go, or you can sit inside to enjoy the taiyaki. You can have it with a cup of (free) green tea, which really balances out the sweetness of the read bean paste. Also, their dough is a bit saltier than the other shops, this really complements the red bean taste.
1 piece is ¥150, you can also buy red bean paste and shaved ice (perfect for the summer!)

Naniwaya

Naniwaya, in Azabajuban right next to the station, was founded in 1909 and is around ever since. Their dough is thinner than other shops, so they are really about the red bean paste! Their taiyaki are ¥150 each, and you can have them to go or in the cafe. They also have other sweets to try, such as shaved ice and cake.
