The best local-style mochi! We had the an, peanut butter, kinako bites, and of course the strawberry mochi. Here's a tip, buy a second batch of strawberries to refrigerate and then eat. Fresh is best, but if you cool it down the mochi stays soft...More

Best mochi around is happening in this tiny store front. Blink and you'll miss it. Multible varieties of mochi made fresh, or narrow your tastes to your favorite flavor. Fresh poha Berry mochi is our favorite.

They do not have delivery. They only accept cash, no credit or debit cards. I know that makes it more difficult to work with but that is the way it is. 🏝
do you ship to the mainland?

Correct. Most mochi can be shipped, except ones with fresh fruit (strawberry, grape, poha). I highly suggest trying it if you haven't before.
