Keki Setto

Day twenty-seven: Keki Setto

The "cake set" or "keki setto" is a great way to sample the wares of Tokyo's multitudinous cake shops. You get a slice of the cake of your choice along with tea or coffee for a set price, usually (although not always) less than buying the same items a la carte.

Chains such as Renoir and Cozy Corner are popular places to stop for cake (or an impromptu fan dance).

This high-end cake shop in Aoyama lures passersby with display cakes topped with towering ziggurats of waxen fruit.
