Kameju 亀十 One Of The Most Famous Dorayaki In Tokyo

Kameju is a take-out only shop near the Kaminari Gates of Asakusa. It sells a traditional dessert called dorayaki, which is can be described as sweets red beans sandwiched between two small pancakes.
The shop of long standing is usually one of the most crowded in the area. It takes about a 3-minute walk from the Asakusa Station to get there.

The Spirit Of Asakusa In A Dorayaki

For Japanese people, there is a sense of nostalgia that comes from eating a dorayaki because they are associated with the small local shops of the shita-matchi (old residential neighborhoods of Tokyo). This nostalgic feeling is often felt when visiting traditional neighborhoods such as Asakusa. During your tour of the area, you should definitely try this traditional sweet to get even more in the spirit of the place.
People recognize Kameju's dorayaki by the extreme fluffiness of the pancake-like patties. The inside is made with adzuki beans that come from Hokkaido. They are sweetened just right and mashed to make the paste inside called anko. One dorayaki is ¥360.

Try Their Monaka Too

The overwhelming majority of people have the dorayaki but there are other things too. The monaka is the second most popular item. It is a wafer cake filled with anko, either white or red. The particularity of the monaka of Kameju is the thick amount of anko filling. One monaka is ¥ 330.
