Apparently this place has been around for a long time, and renovated several years back. The dango here is really tasty, with a not as sweet taste, which I think is indicative of when the place started. Multiple set options to choose from and of course takeout is ok. Fast and friendly service.

I love Japanese sweets, so I visited after reading the reviews. I visited around 2:00 pm on a public holiday. There were empty seats and I was able to sit down right away. (Customers who came right after were turned away because the place was full.) We ordered habutae dango and waited a few minutes. Dango and tea were served immediately. The grilled food was very well charred and delicious. The bean paste had an elegant taste with just the right amount of sweetness. It was as delicious as I expected and I was very satisfied. It was a feast.
