Asakusa Naniwaya is quite popular and a queue of customers is not unusual due to limited seating. The line moves quickly and the food and friendly service is well worth the brief wait.
For this visit, I ordered the Taiyaki Set with Hojicha. Since the cup was large enough to hold the entire contents of the teapot, I was provided with a bell so I could ring for more hot water. The bold roasted green tea flavor provided the perfect balance with the sweet taiyaki and I finished off three cups before giving up my table to the next customer.
