Enjoy taiyaki where it all began!
If you've been living in Japan a while it's likely you've encountered taiyaki - those tasty fish shaped pastries that are usually filled with either red beans or custard. I didn't know the history of Naniwaya Sohonten when I visited originally, but I was curious why there was such a big line. My searches after my visit indicated that they are the original taiyaki makers (since the early 1900's in fact), which makes for a pretty neat historical experience as well as a tasty snack! One of the things to be wary of though is that if you want to sit in and eat, there is usually a crazy wait. I was told 2 hours (yup!) to snag a table. To me, it's easier to just grab your taiyaki to go, unless you're adamant about wanting an in store experience. The taiyaki as expected are delicious, so I can't fault them there.
