Cherry Daifuku Mochi!

For a limited time this summer, Koufukudou, a well-known wagashi (Japanese sweets) chain will be offering cherry daifuku mochi! Most people have probably had the strawberry version of this popular sweet, but the rarer cherry version is also delicious!

Feel free to follow favy!

Cherry Daifuku mochi

Daifuku Mochi is a well-known and popular Japanese sweet that consists of a chewy, mochi exterior, and a filling of red bean paste. A common variation is called 'ichigo daifuku' (strawberry daifuku), which adds a ripe strawberry in the middle. However, 'sakuranbo daifuku' (cherry daifuku) is much less common to find, but is absolutely delicious!
Starting June 14th, Koufukudo, a popular wagashiya(traditional Japanese sweet store) with around 200 stores throughout Japan is offering cherry daifuku mochi as a seasonal item, available as long as cherries are in season (through the summer). Instead of being inside of the mochi, the cherries on these beautiful creations are placed right on top. If you're in Japan this summer, look up the closest koufukudo to you and try one out!

Finding Koufukudo

Unfortunately, the company only has information available in Japanese on their website. The easiest way to look up one of the 200 stores around Japan is to copy and paste the name of the store into your map program of choice: 口福堂
Good luck, and happy eating!
