The desserts are beautifully wrapped and presented. We came to purchase some items to take home but it was hard not to eat some for dessert as well. If you like japanese desserts and treats, you will love this place. Only downside is the price!

A beautiful little shop for your top-of-the-line omiyage (Japanese gift) needs. Delicious dongos, cookies, cakes, and Japanese treats with superior service. A far more pedestrian (and inexpensive) option would be Dainobu on W 56th.

Minamoto is a fanastic find not far from MOMA . The staff speaks more Japanese than English, which is a good sign because their mochi is also truly Japanese , made to perfection. It's a treat to go in this store, and if you have...More

If you haven't had the real mochi--not the prepackaged in plastic kind--you should stop by for a sample. It is so delicate, soft and it will remind you of mochi you can buy in Japan. Try the green tea and also the white peach. Don't...More
