Suitengu Taian / 水天宮たいあん

Probably my biggest fan and most avid reader of my blog - my father, wrote to me in an e-mail that he had no idea what a taiyaki which also meant that he did not know what a taiyaki ice cream was. Perhaps there are some other readers who are not familiar with taiyaki as well. To put it simply, it's a hot bun shaped like a fish and usually filled with azuki. An even easier explanation is available. Check the "snacks" label and you will find a post about a shop called "The Tai Yaki".

多分私のブログの一番のファンと思われる人物(自分のお父さん)が電子メールでたい焼きってわからないようとつぶやいた。当然たい焼きアイスも分かるはずがない。他の読者もたい焼きが知らない人もいるの思うので、簡単に説明します。鯛の形のあったかいまんじゅと言えば一番分かりやすいかも。そじてまんじゅの中につぶばんとかあずきが入ってる。もっと簡単と言えば、“Snacks”のラベルを選択して、“The Tai Yaki”の店の事を書いております。

If you look at the picture above, it looks like an ordinary taiyaki. However, it was the end of summer and this shop had for a limited time only, a vanilla ice-cream filled taiyaki.
