About Chomeji Sakura-mochi

This week I report on "Hanami Food & Drink".

This shop is a long standing shop established 300 years ago.

It is a Tokyo-style sakura-mochi specialty shop.

In Japan, sakura-mochi is very popular as a spring sweets.

This shop sells sakura-mochi all year round, so please try when you come to Japan.


The sakura-mochi in Tokyo looks like a small smooth crepe folded into a square or half circle. In Osaka it looks different.



This sakura-mochi is very big.

Cherry leaves smell good.

Sakura mochi is wrapped in 3 large cherry leaves

Tokyo style sakura-mochi

You can eat the cherry leaves, but you don't have to.

It is recommended to sit on the bench of the Sumida River flowing in front of the store and eat Sakura Mochi!
