This is a very small operation, but offers HUGE taste rewards. All the mochi is FRESH, and many include fresh fruit on the inside - YUM! There is often a long line - but it is worth the wait.

Delicious mochi and worth waiting in line to purchase. If you need a travel gift, a box of assorted mochi is perfect.
