Story & Recommendation
13th Generation Awamochi, a mochi made with millet grains
This shop is one of the most popular Awamochi shop in Japan. Located in the famous Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, people have been enjoying Awamochi at this location since the Edo period (1603 – 1868). An appropriate shop for a city rich in history, “awa” is made out of millet, a grain that was once a major staple diet in Japan. This well-known Awamochi shop is currently run by the 13th generation owner. “Awa itself is not so tasty,” the Awamochi maker tells us, “that’s why Awamochi is being created in mochi form to consume it in more pleasurable way.” An enchanting way of eating “awa,” an order comes with both red bean wrapped and Kinako covered Awamochi.
