I think they are just as pricey in Japan too, though I have yet to try them!


Oh my, Reid, that looks sooooo good! I hope to try some when I stop by O'ahu in a few weeks!



I better check this out next time I'm at Shirokiya. Do you remember which flavors you liked the best?


Where do you get these yummies? I had a very bad facsimile of one last week, and I want a good moochi cream.


I can get about 5 flavors of mochi ice cream here on the mainland, including chocolate, vanilla, red bean, green tea and my favorite, mango. Cost about $5 for 8 of them. Ho da ono! I've tasted the mochi creams though.


Mmmm... double mango is the best!


Those look so delicate and seem almost to pretty to eat!

They do have a light heavenly look to them. Another sweet delight that is a must for 2008 is


Sadly, I'm in LA, where mochi ice cream is a rarity. I'll have to have my mom send me some from Oahu!


I tried some of the mochi cream flavors at Shirokiya back in December when I visited family on Oahu (I live near Seattle now). I thought the taro flavor was good, but the creams are way too sweet for my liking. My husband and son each ordered a green tea mochi cream, took one bite and then gave me the rest. Both of them also complained about the cloying sweetness. We'll stick with mochi ice cream.


I live in Tokyo and we love mochi cream. I just bought some last week at Mitsukoshi. They sell about twenty flavors. They have a shelf life of one day so you have to eat them the day you buy them so we only try one at a time. Last week I had the cafe is TO DIE for. My husband had mango, the daughter had blueberry (always) and I think the son had chocolate.


Mochi is so good, wish more restaurants made. I like the Mikawaya kind (available at TJs). The coffe, mango and green tea are my favorite.

    Most of the newer photos on this site are being taken by this camera. I'm still learning how to use it, but I think the photos it takes are amazing. Though the lens I use often varies, many of the photos on this site are taken with a Canon EF 35mm f2.0 lens.

    A majority of the photos on this site were shot using this little camera. It was compact and discreet -- excellent for taking photos under most conditions. Sadly, it has recently died.
