It might sound unusual to make reservations for sweets, but at Kuya, you kind of have to. This Japanese confectionery shop, located in the west of Ginza, has been in business since 1884. With over a century of history, famous artists such as Natsume Soseki (who is on the 1,000 note) was known to be a regular here.
The signature and bestseller item on sale is the Kuya monaka, made of organic, home-made black sweet beans stuffed in a crunchy wafer-like shell. This sweet is known to sell out as early as before noon, which explains the slithering line outside the shop even way before its opening time.
Reservations not available; walk-ins only.
