Fun of eating on the street - Kamakura

by Chiaki

When I went to Kamakura a couple of days ago, I found a lot of shops on the way from Kamakura Station to Tsurugaoka Hachimangu Shrine and they were offering small sweets and snacks.  I wasn't so hungry then, but the smell of baking 'taiyaki', fish-shaped pancake with sweet red bean paste inside, changed my mind.  I was invited to the shop by the smell and bought one to eat it walking to Hachimangu.

I talked with the shop master, and he said that the shop is a 'noren wake' of Naniwaya, a popular taiyaki shop in Azabu, Tokyo.  You might have heard of it, but 'noren wake' is a sort of system, where a master of a shop with a big brand name allows his qualified student to open a shop with the original brand name.  As I expected from the smell, the taste was soooo good!  If you find it in Kamakura, just try them!  Not only taiyaki, but you can also find a lot more.

We booked a 3-hour short tour with Chiaki as we wanted to try out some local "street food" after our visit to Ghibli museum. At first we suggested Shimbashi based on some online reviews, but Chiaki took the initiative to visit the site and gave us a couple of alternative suggestions, since Shimbashi is more for the working class and less suitable for family with kids. Eventually we decided on Naka...
