Ubaga Mochiya Main Store (うばがもちや 本店)

4.0

Japanese Confectionery

A Japanese confectionary shop situated along the Tokaido Highway in Oji, Kusatsu City. The shop sells “Ubaga Mochi,” a type of ankoro mochi (mochi rice cake wrapped in sweet bean jam). Made according to the same recipe for over 400 years, these tasty treats are said to have been eaten by the great shogun Tokugawa Ieyasu and were depicted in the ukiyoe woodblock prints of renowned artists like Hiroshige and Hokusai. The shop also sells seasonal snacks and other Japanese confections like “Honjin Monaka” wafer cakes and “Aobanagashi” made with Aobana (a variety of Asiatic dayflower), the official flower of Kusatsu City.

昔からあるお店です。
草津の名物うばがもち。
ほどよいサイズと甘さで、他県から来たお客様には必ずお出しするお菓子です。
Reviewed:2019/09/26 江戸時代から続くうばがもち
東海道五十三次、草津と言えば、うばがもち(姥が餅)。広重の浮世絵にも描かれた、うばがもちや。草津駅から歩くが、時間が許すかぎり本店で求めたい。
Reviewed:2018/11/02 草津名物
鉄道唱歌にも唄われていたかな、草津のうばがもち、伊勢の赤福に並ぶ和菓子です
そのお店が国道一号線国道草津にありました。駅から?三条大橋から25kmですね。
おもち以外にも季節の和菓子もいろいろあって目移りしますよ。

          Visitors to Shiga prefecture are almost always hopping east across the prefectural border from Kyoto, and they are almost certainly Lake Biwa-bound. Covering an area of 670 square kilometers, Lake Biwa makes up the bulk of Shiga prefecture, with beautiful lakeside paths that offer myriad walking and cycling opportunities, connecting a string of museums, shrines, and picturesque views that finally lead you to Hikone Castle on the eastern side of the lake.
