Medetaiyaki

I got Medetaiyaki and Medetaiyaki Tenugui (traditional cotton towel) after waiting in line in Kabukiza.

medetai_3

Medetai means like happy, joy or congrats, and you know taiyaki is sea bream shaped Japanese sweets. Medetai+taiyaki=Medetaiyaki sounds happy for Japanese. And more, sweet bean-paste with red (pink) and white mochi dumpling in the tummy of it! Red and white are also happy colour for us. The shop is only for Kabukiza, of course it is very popular and good.

The red bean paste was came with the shaved ice, however, my friend chose to top with condensed milk. And, I chose to top with ice cream. I really love the Matcha shaved ice. However, we surprised with the shaved ice which was incredibly soft.
