If you’re looking for a quintessential Japanese dessert, you can’t go wrong with an ichigo daifuku. With a prime location right on Harajuku’s bustling Takeshita-dori, this confectionery turns out fruit-filled mochi known as daifuku. Its speciality, however, is strawberries, and the shop uses fresh, seasonal strawberries and adjusts the flavour of the sweet bean paste coating so as not to overpower the delicate sweetness of the strawberries. The mochi layer, on the other hand, comes in the classic white as well as a special black colour made with the addition of bamboo charcoal.
Aside from strawberry daifuku, Yurinan also carries colourful cream-filled daifuku made with fresh cream and fruit instead of bean paste. To quench your thirst, there’s fruity strawberry tea and a range of coffee.
