Story & Recommendation
The elegant sweetness and fluffy texture of ohagi (pounded rice covered in red bean paste)

This Japanese confectionary near Kiyomizu Temple has been in business for 100 years. The interior has a traditional Japanese feel that hasn’t changed since the shop first opened. Just looking at some of the antique items used for years is a joy; some of these include an old black telephone, Japanese dolls, and an antique clock. The specialty here are ohagi. Delightfully sweet adzuki (red-bean paste) on the outside, with fluffy pounded rice on the inside, these ohagi go perfectly with matcha. We hope you’ll enjoy these all-hand-made sweets with no pre-made ingredients.
