Story & Recommendation
Popular mamemochi made from fresh sticky rice and simple red bean paste at Demachi Futaba
This Japanese sweets shop is located near the Demachiyanagi stop on the Keihan Electric Railway. It is so popular that there are lines every day. The most popular item is the mamemochi, which has been produced with the same recipe since the shop’s founding. Red bean paste is stuffed into freshly-made sticky mochi rice. Many customers come from far and wide to sample these wares. About fifteen employees man the busy shop behind the showcase of sweets. You mustn’t miss their swift maneuvers and tag team action.

Mamemochi
Mamemochi / ¥175
The red bean paste inside the mochi bun has a mellow, simple taste. The texture of the large bean granules is also great. These should be eaten as soon as possible. The mochi has no preservatives, so it will harden if left out.

Just one minute from the shop is the Kamogawa. When the weather is good, you can sit out on a bench or right on the lawn and take in the view. Eating a sweet dessert seems to enhance the scenery even more.

- Shopping Tips -
All of the sweets, including the mamemochi, are good for only that day. You can eat them while you stroll or bring them back to your hotel for a snack later. If you visit the shop during the later hours, many items will have sold out, so we recommend going earlier.
