Founded in 1913, Usagiya is a long-established traditional Japanese confectionery shop. The name "Usagiya" comes from the founder's zodiac sign, the rabbit.

The shop's specialty is its freshly made dorayaki, featuring a chewy large pancake infused with lotus honey. The sweet red bean paste, made from Hokkaido Tokachi azuki beans, is rich and smooth, having been aged for two nights to deepen the flavor. The combination of the pancake and the red bean paste is perfect, making it easy to understand why Usagiya's dorayaki is considered one of the "Top Three Dorayaki in Tokyo." Due to its popularity, reservations are required for dorayaki purchases after 4 PM.

In addition to dorayaki, Usagiya offers a variety of other traditional sweets, including the "Kisaku Monaka," which has been loved since the shop's founding, and the charming "Usagi Manju." Just a one-minute walk from the shop is a café where you can enjoy dorayaki arranged as French toast or pancakes, as well as sweets like oshiruko and kakigori, all made with the same pancake and red bean paste delivered daily from the shop.
