Refutei is a shop that sells hot and freshly made large-sized Imagawayaki. Imagawayaki is a Japanese dessert. It is made of batter and filled with different stuffings, usually azuki bean paste. It is similar to Dorayaki but Imagawayaki consists of two separate pancakes sandwiches together.
When you leave the north exit of Nakano Station, you will be drawn to the sweet and fragrant scent that drifts from Refutei.
One popular item here at Refutei is imagawayaki with anko with cheese stuffing. The sweetness of the bean paste and the faint saltiness of the cheese go great together. There are also different types of branding irons decorating the Imagawayaki. Imagawayaki is a sweet that fills your stomach and is perfect for cold winters.
