Mihatodo is a store that sells ningyo-yaki and kaminari okoshi (Japanese traditional rice cripsy snacks) in Asakusa Nakamise. The sweet aroma of freshly baked ningyo-yaki wafts from its bustling storefront. The shop is located in the middle of the Nakamise shopping street leading from Kaminarimon to the main hall of Sensoji Temple, just before the intersection of Denpoin Street on the left side.
It is a 4-minute walk from The Gate Hotel Kaminarimon after passing through the Kaminarimon.
Ningyo-yaki, freshly baked doll-shaped cakes, are a must-try!
The freshly baked doll cakes made in the store have a gentle taste of soft sponge cake dough enveloping a moderately sweet red bean paste. The appearance of the cakes adds another element of enjoyment, as they come in cute round shapes, such as the Kaminarimon lantern, five-story pagoda, and pigeon, all of which are unique to Asakusa.
You can buy any shape you like, and for souvenirs, vacuum-packed packages with a choice of sweet bean paste or sweetened bean paste are also popular.

Its popularity is thanks to the variety of flavors combined with its irresistible harmony of peanuts and caramel, is one of the most popular items loved by men and women of all ages, making it a perfect snack or accompaniment to drinks.
