Locals queue up at Kanmi Mitsuya in Asakusa to get a taste of its delicious shiratama dango mochi. The mochi is freshly made daily and comes in different flavours — kuromitsu kinako (black honey and roasted soybean powder), mitarashi (sweet soy sauce glaze), zunda (sweet bean) and matcha.
One plate (¥980) includes five mochi balls of a single flavour, but you can upgrade it to six mochi balls with two flavours (¥1,130). For an additional ¥150, you can add red bean paste or a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. Every order comes with tea and a side of kanten jelly topped with a seasonal syrup.
You can also take some mochi home from Kanmi Mitsuya’s takeout store, which is located just a few minutes away.
