The best dessert in Tokyo is no doubt the Anmitsu (700 yen) at Amamidokoro Hatsune as recommended by Kantaro, the sweet tooth Salaryman (Netflix series). This is a dessert made of jelly cubes, mochi, fruit, sweet bean paste and topped with sugar syrup. A delicate green tea is served with it for free.

If you are visiting the Senso-ji Temple at Asakusa, don’t forget to drop by Cafe Tengoku, as recommended by Kantaro again! This cafe is run by one woman, Miss Ueno, who does everything from making pancakes to dish washing. The name Tengoku means Heaven.
