Hatsune Chaya


Restaurants & Cafés


Keep walking north past Asakusa's Sensoji Temple and Hanayashiki amusement park, and you'll find this traditional sweet shop. Chewy mochi rice cakes and sweet red adzuki beans feature heavily on the menu at Hatsune Chaya, where they're deployed in dishes such as shiratama zenzai, a hot bean soup topped with mochi. It's most popular during the summer, when sweet-toothed diners can feast on an array of kakigori shaved-ice desserts – a refreshing (if not exactly healthy) way to beat the heat.
