Chujodo Hompo

Japanese Confectionery
This long-standing confectioner, just a one-minute walk from Taimadera Station, is where they make and sell famous local specialty Chujo-Mochi. Chujo-Mochi is an unsophisticated Japanese confection that uses the native wild-growing mugwort of the Katsuragi area in the mochi which is then wrapped around elegant sweet smooth red-bean paste. Enjoy the traditional flavors of their Chujo-Mochi and sencha green tea set or red bean soup with kusamochi (rice flour dumpling) as you relax in the peaceful interior of the shop. The front has a wide variety of products packed for take away with everything from two-piece to 48-piece box sets.

    I took a rest at this famous traditional sweets café and shop after visiting to Taimadera temple. These kind of sweets are often so so taste because most of tourists never coming back to same places...

    美味しいですが車で行くには難しいです。2個パックでも綺麗に包装までしてくれてしかも包装料無料!でも行くのに一本道を延々となかなか難易度あります。大阪からはそんなに距離無いの時間はかかります。混んでますが待ち時間はそんなにかかりません。

    お店は9時オープンなので、當麻寺参拝前の腹ごしらえ、遅い朝ごはんで初来店。草餅の上にこし餡ののった中将餅とぜんざいを一つずつ注文して店内でいただきました。草餅はよもぎの風味がしっかりしていて、こし餡もぜんざいは甘さ控えめで非常に食べやすかったです。お土産にもいいと思います。
