Mitsubachi Honten


Restaurants & Cafés


This century-old café in the Ueno area is said to be the birthplace of ogura (sweet red bean) ice cream. Mitsubachi still sells its most famous innovation today, housed in a wafer case that's also available for takeaway or home delivery. Customers who've managed to squeeze into the shop's small eat-in space can enjoy a range of ice creams and kakigori shaved-ice desserts during the summer, or opt for some warming oshiruko adzuki bean porridge in the winter.
