Visited “Tokutaro”.

There was no one waiting when I arrived after 12:00 on a Saturday.
I was able to enter the store easily.

I ordered Nerikiri for 300 yen.
I fell in love with this beautiful item at first sight in the showcase.
It will be fun to take photos.

It will be served on the tray, so
I got it on a bench inside the store.

Both the skin and the red bean paste of nerikiri have a gentle flavor and are delicious.

in the blink of an eye
It was delicious till the end.

I bought some Japanese sweets at Tokutaro in Asakusa. This is a long-established Japanese confectionery shop with a long history, having been established in 1903. There are pine trees planted in front of the store, and the gate has a dignified, historical feel.

The restaurant's specialty menu seems to be Kintsuba. I was hesitant because there were some brightly colored and cute fresh sweets, but I thought I should buy the specialty after all, so I bought Kintsuba.

It is also sold in boxes, but thankfully you can purchase it individually. This time I bought 3 pieces of Kintsuba. There is plenty of red bean paste inside the thin, moist skin. I like that the bean paste is not too sweet but has just the right amount of sweetness.
