One of my favorite sweets is the Dorayaki どら焼き at the shop Kamejyu 亀十, near Seso-ji 浅草寺 at Asakusa, in Tokyo.
Dorayaki is a confection of bean paste sandwiched between two pancakes. It looks like Dora どら or gong in English, that's why it is called Dorayaki. In the shop, there are two types of Dorayaki: 黒あん or the sweet black bean pastes, and 白あん or the sweet white ones. I like the latter. It's soft and fine. My grandmother, who is already 85years old, says that the Dorayaki of this shop has feminine impression!
Do you know the famous Japanese comic "Doraemon ドラえもん
It has been so popular among children in Japan for more than 30 years.
Doraemon, a cat-look robot, is the lovely hero of the comic and he loves Dorayaki どら焼き.
Address: 2-18-11 Kaminarimon, Taito-ku, Tokyo, Japan MAP
Price: the dorayaki of White bean paste 315yen
Comments: It is very popular and often sold out. If you can find it, you're very luckey.
