Restaurants & Cafés


This traditional kissaten, run by a charming old lady and located quite a walk from Asakusa Station, wouldn't honestly be that interesting if it wasn't for the traditional-style pancakes served in high stacks called towers (after the Sky Tree, they say). The soft, airy cakes come with flavoured butter and provide a fun break from the more-or-less-Hawaiian creations that have taken over the city in recent years. Bring a friend, order the five-storey tower, and spend a lazy afternoon working your way down. They also serve decent scones and other baked goods, as well as above-average tea and coffee.

Meal for two: around ¥3,000
