Story & Recommendation
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.

We recommend arriving as early as possible, as the store closes once the ohagi is sold out. There are eight kinds of ohagi. The white azuki is 200 yen each; all others are 170 yen each. Azuki:Standard product. Is fairly sweet for azuki. Kinako:Especially popular with women. The scent of kinako wafts through the air. Black sesame:The sweet black sesame and anko go well together. Aonori:The saltiness and rocky scent of the aonori(dried green seaweed) complements the sweetness of the anko well. Ume(pickled plums):The sourness of the ume goes surprisingly well with the anko. Green ume:A bit more sour than ume. Recommended for ume lovers. Wild rice:Wild rice is full of nutrients, and is nice and crunchy. White azuki:The white azuki has a less sweet, refreshing flavor.
