Downtown Wagashi(Japanese Sweets)Dec. 10, 2015 UPDATE
Gather lords of people to see Mochi Pounding show must be highlight


/ 錦もちつきや
Mochi (rice cake) pounding is created with a wooden millet in a mortar everyday to have it for visitors freshly in bustle market, Nishiki-Ichiba.
Food additive is not in it at all shows the true worth of Nishiki-Mochituki-ya.
It is believed that glutinous rice is used in here is the best yummy in Kansai area. Healthy-oriented must be relived. Some young Japanese people don’t eat Charcoal-grilled mochi the lately it is because too much trouble to ready for it, although we would prefer it. So it...more is chance to have for us as well. Zenzai (melted red beans soup) with mochi and original are trial food during you are in Kyoto.
Made by Super mochi creative expert would not let you down!

For Enthusiasts
Very popular among enthusiasts on these genres. Not always suitable if you are not particularly interested.
It has been over 25 years that I saw Mochi pounding show.
I was really excited taking some photos for this site.
As performer shot Mochi, It is best timing to record video.
When I was eating Powdered green tea Zenzai, I would like to take my girlfriend to here because she fairly likes Japanese traditional sweets.
If you haven't tried a Japanese rice cake, I highly
recommend that you try one at this restaurant! The texture
of rice cake is very sticky but has a sweet taste in it. It
is interesting to note that rice cake is good with sweets
and also as a meal. This restaurant, Nishiki Mochitsuki-ya, offers
both sweets and meal with rice cake that has just made by
staff. Therefore, you would enjoy the taste of fresh rice
cake in various ways.
Yakimochi B
1Must Eat !
Yakimochi B / ¥790
It is valuable set that 5 flavored mochi you can enjoy little by little.
Cheese, peanuts butter, Pollack roe, plum with sliced bonito and seaweed.
Thick paste peanuts butter would be familiar with you.
On the other hands, plum one is a bit sour, but bonito is to be soft.
You would get so many like on your Facebook if you up this photo.
Zoni Set
2Must Eat !
Zoni Set / ¥940
Zoni is eaten on the New year holiday in Japan generally.
Making with sweet white miso is features in Kyoto.
Mochi is chewy. So when the mochi gets smaller , just swallow it.
A bit salty rice boiled with red beans is the meal which we have celebrate things. It is available from autumn till winter.
Powdered green tea Zenzai
3Let's Try !
Powdered green tea Zenzai / ¥940
We believe that Zenzai is red beans melt soup but, they have unique idea that pouring hot green tea instead. Light taste matcha is far better having with red beans.
It is a great to have salty dried kelp to take away the aftertaste.
Recommended eating it if you are a bit hungry before dinner.

Mochi is pounded in front of you at Nishiki-mochitsuki-ya shop. Although the timing is irregular, they perform it when rice cake is running short. So you may be able to see it relatively often on weekends. Sometimes next session is written on a board inside. You can ask them and try pounding mochi. Make a visit and say hello.
