Opened in 1951, Tsukishima-ya is famous for its imagawa-yaki (muffin-like sweet stuffed with bean paste) cooked at the shop front. Everyone, including foreigners, are lured by the lovely, sweet aroma. Other Japanese comfort food like onigiri (stuffed rice ball) and oinari-san (sushi-flavored rice wrapped by deep-fried tofu) are also available. Most of the food is often sold out by early evening, so we suggest you go early.

Drawn in by the sweet smell of imagawa-yaki
The price of 140 yen per piece has been the same for long, and it seems reasonable for something homemade. Its sweet smell wafts through the air all the way to the intersection luring people to get one.
Pick your favorite flavors from a choice of three
Imagawa-yaki (140 yen) is available in three flavors: ogura(sweet red bean paste), custard, and cheese. The puffy crust stuffed with deliciousness is exquisite and has a fine balance of sweetness!
Rice snacks and soft-serve ice cream is also popular
Onigiri (140 yen-) and oinari-san (110 yen) also have a good homemade taste. Almost everything gets sold out by early evening, so if you pass by, and there's some available, make sure to get one. Soft-serve ice cream can be savored as you walk too!
