Taiyaki, literally “baked snapper”, is a century old snack appreciated among all ages. The snack got his specific shape from the tradition of eating “tai” (snapper) during festival as a sign of luck. Using chargrills and cast iron clamp, the red bean paste is sandwiched between a crispy wheat flour skin. For the modest sum of 170 yens, get your azuki taiyaki like a local and wonder the towns of Yanesen.
