You can't leave Japan without trying some of the delicious traditional desserts. And there's no better place in Tokyo to find the best traditional Japanese foods and culture than Asakusa.

Take your senses on a journey to traditional Japanese dessert café, Matoi, located less than a minute away from Asakusa's famous Kaminarimon. Established in 1894, it has spent over a century perfecting green tea dessert, including Japanese classics like anmitsu (red bean paste), dango (skewered mochi balls), zenzai (red bean soup with mochi balls), and kakigori (shaved ice).
