Japanese desserts have their own unique character representing the minimal culture of Japan. Tokyo is a place where you will find traditional but also modern fusion confectionery. You need not find a particular shop for a particular dessert, sweetness lies in every nook and corner of the city. Still, as Tokyo is a mega-city, you might want to have a general idea about the locations of the signature sweet shops.
Here is a list of some of the top dessert spots:
- Japanese Ice Ouca
Offering a wide array of ice-creams, shakes, and gelato kind of things, this spacious ice-cream parlor is worth giving a try. You just can’t miss its seasonal treats. It is popular for a number of desserts but matcha is unparalleled. Japanese Ice Ouca in Ebisu nearly tops the chart of the best dessert places in the whole of Tokyo. This cozy, well-ventilated, airy, aromatic, and light decor catches everyone’s attention.
This shop specializes in healthy desserts. This recently opened sweet shop is a ray of hope for all those who have a sweet tooth yet are willing to stay healthy. It uses local ingredients to prepare healthy desserts. Located in the LifeRox Cube Building, Qonfection has spread a way of happiness for all those who want low-calorie and gluten-free desserts devoid of any additives or artificial colorants. It is a well-renowned store on the internet that has recently opened a physical store in the year 2017.
- Shiro Hige
Shiro Hige is heaven for Ghibli lovers. Also known as Shirohige’s Cream Puff Factory, Shiro Hige is a movie-driven idea that is implemented everywhere, right from the structure to the menu. It has Totoro-shaped cream puffs as the main highlight (as goes by the name). Its location is appealing, very close to the station, and lying in a residential area of Setagaya. This two-story building has a shop and a bakery on the ground floor where they make and sell sweets and a cafe on the second floor where you can enjoy these sweets with hot tea or coffee. Go early for the cream puffs since these are made only once a day.
- Patisserie Sadaharu Aoki
This store is opened by Aoki who was trained in Paris and already tried his hands in owning and running the shops before it’s opened in Tokyo. So, it is an amazing blend of Japan and France which is delightful and scrumptious too. Its matcha croissant and matcha eclair are unbeatable. Its super clean and luxurious interior gives you a homely feel and a relaxing time.
Founded way back in the year 1862 by Louis Ernest Ladurée, this is a prominent leader in manufacturing and selling macarons. It is quite astonishing to know that the bakery sells 15,000 double-decker macarons every day. This luxurious cafe and dessert shop is basically from Paris and has expanded to other parts of the world too. It is the top choice of female fashionistas in the city. Though it is known for macarons, it has tempting pastries and chocolates too. Its online orders are free delivered in the UK on an order of more than £80.
- Toshi Yoroizuka
Located within a walking distance of the Tokyo Station, Toshi Yoroizuka is a top-notch chocolatier in the whole country. Its desserts are tempting and the cakes are fresh and fluffy at a decent price. Taking a break with its iced coffee is also not a bad idea. Located in Tokyo Midtown, Toshi Yoroizuka is very easy to find and approach. Its amiable staff adds stars to the whole experience. Its specialty is that it prepares the dessert right in front of you, so you can experience it live, which is one of its kind.
