Originally an offshoot of Ginza's Kimuraya, this pastry shop and bakery boasts a history almost as illustrious as its big brother's: it opened inside Tsukiji's outer market in 1910. Patrons keep coming back for their Keshi Anpan, a sweet bun made with beer hops and garnished with poppy (keshi) seeds. The regular anpan come in several versions – choose from smooth (koshian) or chunky (tsubuan) bean paste – while savoury treats like curry bread with beef and onion are also available.
