the place is nice, i loved the theme. the food is good, and suprisingly cheap. the staff was really nice and polite (too polite even, his voice was like whispering lol). too bad i only spent like 30 minutes in here (they close on 4.30). this place is perfect for a coffee break after long hours stroll in asakusa

Wasn't even sure what it was and wasn't even considering it but that would have been the biggest of regrets. When I found out it was ice cream sandwich I wasn't sold, but this was amazing! A nice warm bun with ice cream inside. An absolute must try..

I found this place while wandering around one morning. There is a small seating area but no table. The sweet warm bread smell is intoxicating. I tried a bite of everything on the menu and was so glad that I did. I had melon bread at another vender later in my trip which was filled with ice cream. I didn't... More

The melon bread is not bad, and they have different favors with ice cream or whipped cream, and this place is so popular almost all the time. However, tbh, i have tried many melon pan in Tokyo, by far the best is in Shibuya. They even put fruit in them, and the cream tastes different. U know like manufactured one... More

We found the shop by accident, but so glad we did! We chose the standard melon pan with cream filling. Definitely worth trying :)

I ordered 3 melon bread, one to eat right away and two to bring. They tasted sooo good with the sugar on top, and they were extremely fluffy. It was even still fluffy after a whole day!! It's definitely worth standing in line for this, and I can't wait to the next time I'm going to Japan, for then I... More

We had the melon bread with matcha ice cream filling and it was incredible! It was so soft and fluffy and warm on a cold day. Very very happy!

Very Tasty melon bread. It's easy to find because that's the most visible item on their display. I only had Melon pan (=bread) but there were many other baked goods that looked yummy. Don't get out of your way to eat here though, there are good bakeries all over Tokyo.

I used google to find this place after seeing it on "Only in Japan"'s review of this place. Having been to Asakusa previously, I didn't know of the secret melon pan attraction so this time I had to find it. Warning: Google Maps is not very reliable at least as far as we tried. We stumbled into a matcha dessert... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
