Sakuraya Taiyaki: Tokyo 2017

After our extremely filling meal at Ginza Bairin, we walked to nearby Hakuhinkan Toy Park (a great place to check out your favourite cartoon or anime character). A couple of blocks away, in the Shinbashi area of Minato, is a tiny street-level taiyaki stand called Sakuraya Taiyaki.

Taiyaki translates to “baked sea bream” and you’ve probably seen these little fish-shaped treats at night markets most often filled with a sweet red bean paste.

While we were still full, we wanted to try the taiyaki in Japan so we picked up a Strawberry Taiyaki which they made fresh to order. Inside this cute little fish was a hot strawberry filling. It was almost too cute to eat… almost.
