Sweet Potato lovers dream shop, Rapoppo (らぽっぽ) is located in many train stations and depachikas through out Japan such as Shinjuku, Ikebukuro, Tokyo Skytree town, Shibuya. I am very much a sweet potato person and this place sells yummy treats that satisfy my cravings.
They are most famous for their “Baked Potato Apple Pie” (焼きたてポテトアップルパイ) for 820yen and you can also get the Mini version for 525yen.
I also like their danish bars (おいもやさんのこだわりデイニッシュバー) which are 162yen each. It’s like a crossiant sugar sweet potato stick!
They also have different pies and treats during different seasons so you may see some that are different every time you visit their shop. Give it a try if you are into sweet potatoes!
PS: Another one of my sweet potato favs is this place.

Matsunosuke NY is an apple pie shop opened by Akiko Hirano. The shop is named after her grandfather Matunosuke. It’s a small sweets shop that also serves cheesecakes and pancakes but we only tried their apple pies — the “big apple pie” & the “sour cream apple pie”. They were both good and not overly sweet – which is a big plus for me since I’m not a fan of super sweet desserts.
If you’re lucky enough to get a window seat, you’ll be able to people watch all the fashionable people passing by through the large window. It’s a nice place to visit for a tea/coffee break or an afternoon snack.
