If traditional Japanese sweets are your thing, you'll love this old-school purveyor of wagashi which deals in snacks like the newly released Shintora-yaki (¥200). Their signature treat, however, is the monaka. These wafers come in two flavours, bean paste (¥120) and chestnut (¥150), and are at their best the day after they've been baked – a decrease in moisture helps stabilise the taste, they say.
