Operated by Yushima kappo restaurant Kurogi, this eponymous wagashi specialist is hidden away on Tokyo University's Hongo campus, inside the Kengo Kuma-designed Daiwa Ubiquitous Research Building. The uber-stylish interior matches nicely with the artistic sweets on offer – don't miss out on the warabimochi, which is a treat for both the eyes and the taste buds. We also enjoyed the innovative kakigori selection, which combines playfulness and finesse in seasonal creations like the Milk and Five Grains. This marriage of azuki beans, walnut, sesame, papaya syrup and rock salt is a masterpiece in itself, but paired with a cup of Sarutahiko coffee, it reaches almost divine heights.
