The rice cake specialist Gekko draws crowds with its popular kinako mochi, delightfully chewy mochi cakes coated in a powder of roasted soybean flour. If you’re lucky, you may be able to catch Horiguchi-san’s mallet in full swing: the mochi master does his pounding in-house, several times throughout the day.
