Puzzled about the recent pancake craze in Tokyo? Take a day off from the queues in Harajuku and head north to Oyama for this 3cm-thick creation, a carb bomb so stuffy you'll feel like running back to the station afterwards. The retro interior and furniture at café Pinocchio will bring you back to the Showa period while the pancake slowly cooks on a copper plate.
