Mori no Okashi: a delicious Japanese sweets shop in Kita-shinchi.

I recommend trying the warabi-mochi from Mori no Okashi!

Mori no Okashi was also featured on TV. The program caused quite a sensation and now the shop is visited by many customers.

I found Mori no Okashi’s ohagi and its original warabi-mochi, known as “shinchi warabi,” to be totally delectable!

Shinchi-warabi (Y450) comes in two varieties, kinako (roasted soybean powder) and Uji matcha. Today I’ll be reporting on the kinako version.

The pack of eight warabi-mochi comes full of kinako.

While this would be plenty on its own, the product also comes with an extra bag of kinako.

While the warabi-mochi is soft, it maintains its resilient texture even after chewing it a few times. I found it supreme—a totally new experience for me! The taste of the fragrant kinako—which has a slightly adult bitterness—casts a magic spell on the warabi-mochi, enhancing its mild sweetness. While I had thought that you couldn’t really differentiate much between different kinds of warabi-mochi, I found this warabi-mochi to be in a class all of its own! This delectable warabi-mochi allowed me to experience an amazing texture that overturned my concept of warabi-mochi.

Shinchi-warabi, now a specialty product of Shinchi.
This product sells out soon after the shop opens, so I recommend going early.
