Murakamiya Mochiten (村上屋餅店)
Located on Itsutsubashi-dori Avenue at the entrance to Tohoku University, Murakamiya Mochiten is a long-established mochi shop dating back to 1877. The “zunda mochi” which makes use of Tohoku’s famous “zunda” is popular. They continue a method of careful work unchanged since the founding and reduction of sugar to bring out the original sweetness of zunda (mashed boiled green soybeans). Popular items include the three-colored mochi with three flavors: sesame, chestnut, and zunda. Additionally, sweet zunda of every fashion, like daifuku, kuzu-manju, and the summer-limited shaved ice “zunda milk” are popular.
