A shop "Asakusa Kagetsudo" which sells huge melon-pan with 4 shops in Asakusa.

The main shops is located at the end of the "Asakusa Nishi-Sando Shopping District" located in the "Senso-ji Temple" main hall west.


There is a "Kazaguruma(sindmill) wall" on the outer wall of the shop, and it is remodeled every season.
