This is a very popular traditional confectionery shop. They have a motto “one type of red bean paste can only be used to make one kind of pastry”. This mochi is made in the shape of the conical hats which the monks studying at Mt. Hiei wear. Its taste has not changed since the Taisho era (1912-1926), so it’s beloved by both locals and tourists alike. You’ll get addicted to the soft, sticky texture.
