We were very lucky, the Warabimochi was still available!

Because the Edo-Tokyo museum was very interesting, we came here later than we excepted. We had to wait around 20 minutes to take our seats, but we were still very lucky, the Warabimochi was still available! The Warabimochi from Hokusai sabo is very beloved and there is only limited availability.

This one is a Japanese parfait “Anmitsu” with Matcha & vanilla ice cream. Wow, this conbination was awesome! The Japanese wafer “Monaka” added a special accent for this parfait.

The interior of this cafe is a simple Japanese modern design and the atmosphere of this cafe was a restored Japanese old house, we were very impressed. This cafe is an ideal spot for taking a rest for international tourists.
