This shop to the left of the main gate is a popular destination for visitors. Okoshi are the popular food gift that Asakusa is famous for. These colorful, pastel-colored, puffed rice crackers include flavors like peanuts, almond, nori, mattcha, brown sugar, and black bean cocoa. Tokwadou’s lineup includes a variety of crackers, sweets, and a unique collection of karintou crackers include flavors like Satsumaimo (sweet potato), wasabi, ninjin (carrots), tamanegi (onions), and pirikara gobo (spicy burdock root). There is a small production kitchen behind glass where you can watch the okoshi making process.
