Yakimochi @ Gion – Kyoto, Japan

I’ve passed by this yakimochi (grilled mochi stand) stall on Shijo-dori in Gion (geisha district) a few times and each time, the aroma drew me in!

I couldn’t resist!

The mochi is coated with sugar soy sauce and then grilled!   The mochi is chewy.. and sweet and salty the same time.. sooooo yummy!

FAIM? OUI OUI!!

  1. Hey there! I’m writing a piece on regional Japanese specialties that are suitable for vegetarians, and I wanted to add a bit about the yakimochi in Kyoto! Unfortunately, I ate mine and forgot to take any photos. (It smelled too good, I couldn’t resist). Would you allow me to use your photo if I credit you and link to your blog? Thanks!
