Stop by Ginza Bakery near Ginza Itchome station to try one of the area's famous sweets: the cream-filled castella biscuit sandwich. Available in plain or in rum & raisin flavours.

Ginza Bakery

Ginza Bakery is a flagship shop in Ginza that has been in business since 1945. Their castella biscuit sandwich (¥360) is one of their signature sweets that many people in Tokyo know about.

They have two versions of it: one plain, and one with rum & raisins inside the cream.

The bakery sometimes participates in department store food shows in Ginza where it can sell about 100 of them in just an hour! They're that popular!

In appearance, it looks like the cream is sandwiched between two hard cookies but actually they're fluffy sponge cakes. The cream is not very dense either, and not too sweet, so it's not as heavy as it seems.

It's just the right size afternoon treat. You might want to have it with a cup of their good quality coffee.

Ginza Bakery is located a mere 30-second walk from Ginza Itchome station. It doesn't look like much from the outside but you surely won't miss their big blue store sign.

The first floor is the bakery but there aren't any baked loaves of bread there, just biscuits, western-style sweets, and souvenir boxes.

The castella biscuit sandwich is kept refrigerated so you're better to eat it quickly. That's why most people ordering it use the cafe space on the second floor.

It's a charming little well-lit space with 12 seats. It's just the right place to take a breather from the bustle of Ginza.
