Tokyo’s Softest Mochi? 築地福餅

Updated 31 May 2016.

We are very sad to say that this shop has closed. Today was the last day. We wish the owner much happiness in her retirement.

Shinji found out the husband of the owner used to own this shop and was selling seafood here. When he passed away the wife took over the shop and was selling the mochi. She decided it was time to close the shop.

Shinji did stop by today to buy a bunch and we have it in our freezer. We will treasure these sweets.

There is a tiny stall, Tsukiji Fukumochi, selling some amazing mochi. The rice taffy is so tender that it almost melts in your mouth. One of the mochi is served on JAL flights. Shinji brought the ones on the right home and we couldn’t stop eating them. Yomogi (a Japanese herb, mugwort), shio (salt), and takesumi (charcoal) stuffed with a sweet azuki bean paste. On his next trip back he picked up the ichigo daifuku, with a fresh strawberry, which was also amazing.

Often the mochi is very chewy, but there is something different about these, that make them worth a journey.

  2. I can see they are almost dripping. Looks delicious.

  3. Oishii. I have walked past this shop for years. Lucky that Shinji brought them home. Also, lucky that they are in the outer shop and won’t be moving to Toyosu.

  4. This looks delicious! I’m visiting Tokyo in April 🙂 will have to stop at this stall!

    1. Konnichiwa! I hope that you find it. It is a tiny stall. Please let me know if you find it. Bring along a photo of the packaging and you can show it to some of the shop clerks, hopefully they can point you to the shop.

      1. That’s great advice 🙂 Thanks!
