Very famous taiyaki shop in Azabu Juban. The funny guy in picture just slid in front of my camera when I tried to take pictures of the grill. ^^;;;
To take-out the taiyaki, you need to phone and reserve a few hours in advance(not that it takes a few hours to make the taiyaki but the shop is always too busy with too many orders). There is a newly opened cafe on the second floor where you can have freshly-made taiyaki. Drink set with one taiyaki is 600yen. Also ordered a kinako roll cake with red bean paste. Both are very good! Take-out taiyaki are still very nice if you reheat them in a toaster or oven. The charcoal aroma from the bag made my mouth water all the way home.

Nice photo of the chef!! 😀
The place is so popular yet the cafe is quite empty, so most people just get them take out. These ‘phone-in’ order is not so foreigner friendly…^^;;
I am not sure but maybe they have English-speaking staff? This area is near Roppongi, i.e. lots of foreigners around.
