The reviews are well deserved! Great mochi, but really loved the rice cake with red bean paste. Excellent. Definitely worth a visit if you're in LA's Little Tokyo area.

The best mochi in California. Always fresh and reasonably priced. It's said that the fortune cookie was even invented at this very bakery! This historic place is the best of California.

There is a reason this bakery has been in business since 1903. Located in Little Tokyo, this unpretentious-appearing small bakery serves excellent Japanese pastries.The mochi balls are simply outstanding . If you're in the neighborhood, give it a try.

The shop is 113 years old. They specialize in traditional Japanese sweets. Large mochi pieces for about $2. Japanese crackers and packaged modern candy (like green tea kit kats).

Downtown Los Angeles is a busy metropolis of towering
buildings, bustling streets, and industrial
warehouses. There is a distinct multiplicity of
cultures here with a growing influx of business
professionals and hipsters. Many call the evolution of
Downtown over recent years gentrification. New lofts,
bars, hotels and restaurants are popping up regularly.
Downtown is home to some of the very best restaurants
