Yummy yummy!!!

Mochi was so soft, not too sweet, fresh sweet grapes & strawberry in center. Very well made. Baked lima bean manju & brownie center mochi was my favorite!!!

My daughter wanted to stop here to get mochi, as she'd been introduced to this Japanese dessert by her Japanese language teacher. These are lovely, delicate desserts made from rice with various fillings. Truly artistic food!

Just a simple note. These ladies make the best mochi on the Big Island. Maybe among the best in the whole State of Hawaii. It is always the very freshest it can be. I always buy a colorful basket for my wife on Easter.

Parking is a problem... prepare to walk a couple of blocks because there is no parking lot... just curbside street parking. Also, they are closed on Mondays, and I think Tuesdays too. Next, mochi is sticky and sweet... but not sweet by our American standards.... the texture is like that gooey thing inside the toy eggs that you squish around.... More

Personally I prefer ice cream mochi, but I think the quality was good. I loved seeing all the different varieties and custom orders were also available. The assorted boxes would make a really pretty gift, especially if someone back home was a big mochi fan and you were flying home soon. The owner was very friendly and gave us samples.... More

I have had Mochi before, so I knew what too expect but I was traveling with some newbies. We went there on several recommendations. It would have been nice (even for me) to have some samples available so that we could narrow down what we liked and didn't like before ordering. Also the young lady up front was somewhat inpatient...

Now for those of you that like Mochi this place will knock your socks off! Reviews are great and while I had never heard of Mochi I had to try it.....hmmm. Not a fan of squishy fruit flavored bean paste. The flavors were good but the texture is an acquired taste... I found its better if you go back to... More

Wide varieties of Mochi...great to order by phone and then pick up. My favorite are the Mochi mini balls filled with assorted chocolates like kit Kay whoppers, snickers, twix, cookies and cream. Loved going there parking in back is good too!!! Love to purchase from here and take on trips to spread the aloha.

After trying this treat from a convience store, I had to try the "real thing". What a wonderful treat and very nice place to stop in. Just like a little bakery and they even let you try a couple samples before you buy! If you have not tried Mochi, you need to stop in their kitchen and buy a box.... More

Generally not all that impressed with mocha in the past but this places products left a very good impression. Their signature type is fresh strawberry - certainly a good place to start if you are a newbie. Very part of the experience on visiting Hilo.
