Alaska palace and Taiyaki wakaba
This is Akasaka Palace 迎賓館, which is now used as the state guesthouse.
It’s a 5-minute walk from JR Chuo Line Yotsuya station.
It was originally built as the palace of crown prince in 1909, but it had not been used as the prince’s palace for some reasons. The main building was designed by the Neo-Baroque style and it is designated as a National treasure.
And then I dropped at taiyaki Wakaba 鯛焼き わかば near the palace.
It is regarded as one of the three most famous taiyaki shop in Tokyo.
Taiyaki is a fish-shaped pancake stuffed with an 餡 or sweet bean paste.
I think the an 餡 of this shop is a little bit salty, but it is authentic.
I went back and forth by a bicycle between my house to Yoyogi, crossing the center of Tokyo. 28km
