Asakusa Kagetsudo main shop
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.
June I visited was a blue windmill with a summer pattern.
Vivid blue! When the wind blows, the windmill spins.
My Melon-pan level：4
About Jumbo Melon-pan
The top photo of the blog is just after the purchase, but the other photos were taken after I brought it home.
Size：About 14 cm in diameter (Abou 5.5 in)
The reason melon-pan looks flat is because its diameter is large.
It is a very soft bread, and if you put it on your hand, you will understand it well.
Since the cafe "Cafe "Fuglen" from Norway in Asakusa / FUGLEN ASAKUSA @ Asakusa" introduced the other day is at the end of the shopping district, it is also recommended to enjoy it with coffee!
On "Melon-pan maps", there is a shop of Melon-pan I ate.
