Rikuro Ojisan (りくろーおじさん) is a shop specialized in fluffy baked cheesecakes. They are one of the most famous cheesecakes in Japan, although only available in Osaka. When visiting Osaka, a lot of people make the detour to try this unbelievable cheesecake.
They sell freshly baked cheesecakes that are extremely soft and fluffy. The texture is so incredibly smooth. They also use a selected cheese imported from Denmark, high-quality milk and butter from Hokkaido, which creates this unmatchable creamy taste.
There are 11 shops in Osaka, the very first shop is in a shopping area near Namba station. Some of them including the first shop have a cafe where you can enjoy the freshly baked cheesecake, and others only offer cheesecakes for take-out.
