8 colorful, handmade ohagi (Japanese sweet rice balls)
A small shop on an off-street in Gion. Try the ohagi, handmade by the elderly proprietress. The main specialty of this shop is that there are eight different kinds of ohagi. While all of them feature the same sweet anko（bean paste） and soft mochigome（sticky rice）, there are eight different designs. Besides the typical azuki and kinako (roasted soybean flour), ume and black sesame flavors are also available. Just looking at how colorful they are is enjoyable. There are only seven seats in the whole place, so you may have to wait. We recommend taking it to go if you can't wait.
