The shop keeper was very nice and patient with foreigners. The buns are 380 yen a piece and very good. Glad I finally tried.


I went to Fukumaru-san from Koshomochi.
You can buy freshly baked pepper mochi.
Arrived at 11am on a Saturday and waited 30 minutes for the store to open.
I was able to buy it right away without lining up.
Now it seems like each person can buy as many as they want.
I bought soy sauce and miso flavor.
It's peppery and has ingredients inside.
It was tightly packed.
Because I don't know the authentic taste
I don't know but
It was delicious.
It will fill you up quite a bit.


I had the pepper mochi for eat-in.
The two flavors, soy sauce flavor and miso flavor, were wrapped and grilled right in front of me, and they were piping hot and very delicious.
The soy sauce flavor is more peppery, and the miso flavor is sweeter and gentler, both are delicious, so I definitely recommend both. The key point is that it contains plenty of Kujo green onions. It's the most delicious pepper mochi I've ever eaten, and I'd like to eat it again.

Translated from Japanese:

I found out on Instagram that the regular holidays from June to September have changed, so it became easier to go on the day of the week, so I went there. Mondays and Tuesdays are for shumai takeout, and Wednesdays and Thursdays are closed on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Pepper mochi, shumai, in-store food and drink day...


Translated from Japanese:

When I was going on a ``Kyoto Railway related trip,'' I researched various restaurants in downtown Kyoto, and this restaurant caught my eye. Apparently they serve Taiwanese street food ``pepper cake''. I like ``pepper mochi''...
