The other day, I received an “Okin Mochi” from a friend who went to Mie Prefecture for a visit. Okin mochi are flat and round grass-covered rice cakes covered with a generous amount of potato starch and filled with sweet bean paste. In addition to its simple and good taste, the small size of each rice cake made me want two or three more.
The Okin mochi can only be purchased at Okin Chaya in Taki County, Mie Prefecture, so if you are interested in Okin mochi, please take a drive and visit Okin Chaya. I would like to go there.
The trademark “Okin Mochi” was registered on November 1, 1975 for the designated goods “confectionery and bread” (Japanese Registration No. 1168921). (Sakuramochi)
