Kusaha Mochi Honpo

Candy Store
This Japanese-style sweets cafe/shop was established in the early Meiji period. Situated along the road leading to the Fujisaki Hachimangu Shrine and identifiable by the red Japanese-style parasol out front, the cafe sells and serves its signature kusaha mochi rice cakes, sekihan red rice with sweet beans, seasonal okowa glutinous rice with beans, and other Japanese-style sweets. The cafe has an eat-in space where customers can enjoy a bowl of zenzai sweet azuki bean soup or zoni rice cakes and vegetables soup while taking in a seasonal view of the cafe's garden. In summer, the cafe offers and shaved ice. The matcha green tea the cafe serves is Seikaihaku from longstanding Kyoto tea dealer Kitagawahanbee Syouten in Uji. This tea has a smooth flavor that goes perfectly with the cafe's sweets.

    参拝後にこちらのお店を利用いたしました。平日であり、比較的早い時間でしたが、お餅を買いにこられる方も多く、人気のようでした。チーズぜんざいがあり、マスカルポーネチーズがのっており、混ぜながらいただきましたが、とてもおいしかったです。
