World favorite ''Doraemon'' is named after his favorite snack "Dorayaki." It's a staple Japanese sweet made with pancakes and a sweet bean paste filling.


That character? Yeah, his favorite's Dorayaki!

Have you ever heard of the Japanese confection ''Dorayaki''? When you hear the name, it probably reminds you the world-famous robotic cat ''Doraemon''.

The world's beloved ''Doraemon'' is named after his favorite snack ''Dorayaki''. It is a staple Japanese sweet that is made with pancakes and a sweet bean paste filling.

Dorayaki from 'Kamejyu' is worth the wait!


''Kamejyu'' in Asakusa is very famous for its dorayaki. There is always a long queue during weekends or holidays, and it is often sold out.

''Kamejyu''' is very well-known for its dorayaki, and has been introduced by many magazines and television shows. It is so delicious, it's definitely worth queuing for.

The well-balanced sweetness between the fluffy pancake and red bean filling could probably lead you to eat too many of them.

Besides dorayaki, there are a variety of different Japanese sweets sold in ''Kamejyu''. The alluring Amezaiku (sculpted candy) is highly recommended as a souvenir, since it lasts a long time.


When I introduced my mother to "Kamejyu'' during her visit to Tokyo, she was surprised that you can find such a delicious dorayaki in Tokyo. Also, when I showed Asakusa to someone I had fancied at that time, we had a chance to taste the dorayaki, hot from the oven, together along the Sumida river and that person told me, ''I am obsessed with Asakusa''.

With these sweet and sour episodes, ''Kamejyu's'' dorayaki has become all the more memorable for me. I believe that it could be the Japanese confection that makes your trip exciting and colorful as well.
