Tokyu Hands’ Ikebukuro outpost is offering some deep-sea desserts until Aug. 23. Its “Aquarium Sweets” series features 16 unique cakes, each shaped to look like a different sea critter, ranging from a cuddly otter to a sea slug. The cakes (ranging in price from ¥500 to ¥650) each has a different flavor, but the tastiest is Shirowani (Sand Tiger Shark), which tastes of tart apple-cinnamon. You’re bound to find one aquatic creation to suit your tastes, so head over to the seventh floor of Tokyu Hands and see which grabs your attention.
