Nested in the residential area of Minami Aoyama, this little Japanese confectionary shop stands in contrast to the upscale and glamorous Omote-sando street. With an aspiration to bring traditional Japanese sweets back into everyone's daily life. Higashiya Man, where the Man stands for Manju, a type of steamed bun, offers a range of beautifully made and presented traditional Japanese sweets. Each full of character and perfect as gifts, the store also offers seasonal creations that never fails to impress. Although new, the shop setting brings somehow a nostalgic feeling, perhaps due to its devotion to traditions. Traditions that persevere despite the passing years, but re-invented to fit the modern life.

We recommend trying the petite round Hitokuchi-gashi during your visit, and bring back as gifts the dried crispy Okoshi that comes with a beautiful box. Sets start at ¥ 1,300. Freshly made Manju around ¥ 200 each.
