How about dropping by on your way to the Yanaka Ginza shopping district?

“Nezu no Taiyaki” is located within a 5 minute walk from Nezu station. It was established in 1957 and offers artisan Taiyaki today. It is very easy to access from Ueno station and Nippori station, and is also easily accessible by foot on your way to the Yanaka Ginza shopping district (previously introduced on TJ) and Nezu Shrine.
You can print this map out and take it with you when you travel around this area.



Taiyaki is a Japanese snack that has been enjoyed since the late 19th century.

Taiyaki was born in Japan in the late 19th century. The pan cake-like dough is molded to look like a fish and has “anko” inside of it. There are several theories why it is shaped like a sea bream fish, but most likely it’s just because of it’s name, “tai,” which means “happy.” Anko is a bean jam that is made of stewed sweet adzuki beans. This ingredient is often used for Japanese sweets. The crispy outer cake and the hot stewed anko go so well together! Please try it!

Writer / Translator

I’m a freelance translator from Tokyo who likes to travel right in the middle of the unpredictables in life. Through the translation of articles I hope to create points of contact between Japan and the rest of the world. As a writer, I want to add information that isn’t in the guide book, from a “wasabi” perspective!
