Funawa is also running a coffee shop too. 

The shop name is Funawa Cafe (ふなわかふぇ).

It is located very closed to A4 exit of Toei Asakusa Line. It is truly closed.

I haven’t visited Asakusa for a while, so, I was surprised when I found such a nice building.  

Furthermore, recent Asakusa was quite different from my memories.  It has a lot of fashionable buildings and shops than its past. Wow. Time has been changing… 

Anyway, I visited Funawa Cafe!!

They offer unique sweets using Imo Yokan.

I ordered a parfait using Imo Yokan (Japanese Name: Imo Yokan Sofuto Pafe(芋ようかんソフトパフェ).

It contains fresh cream blended with Imo Yokan paste.  Tastes good!!  

The drink is American coffee.  I was wavering the coffee or their original drink named Oimo Latte (lit: Potato Latte), but I chose the coffee as the latte must be sweet(Imo Yokan is a sweet. So, I guessed the latte should be blended some milk and Imo Yokan paste. I don’t like to eat a sweet with sweet drink).

They also sell a Japanese traditional sweet, Anmitsu which usually has jelly, sweet beans and more with syrup.   Of course, you can eat Imo Yokan at this place.

You can also enjoy Matcha!! That sounds great!!( ´∀`)
