In this article, we will introduce all the cute and unique confectioneries with seasonal fruits made by Fruits Mochi Shochikudo Suita Main Branch, whose fruits daifuku (stuffed rice cake) are very popular!
This shop first started its business in the Yamada-mura in 1889 and made ichigo (strawberry) mochi in the 1980s. Since the current 5th owner loved western confectionery ever since he was small, the former 4th owner thought of Fruits Mochi with a good appearance and fresh ingredients so that the 5th can be more familiar with Japanese confectionery. It looks so cute, orders from other faraway locations are also piling up!

Make sure to reserve them for gifts!
The mochis are raw confectioneries so the numbers available per day are limited. They accept reservations and cool delivery according to Matsumoto Masanari, the 5th owner of the shop. You wouldn’t want to miss it for Valentines Day so make sure you reserve in advance to get your hands on these cute delectable sweets.
It’s bright inside and is very accessible even if it’s your first time. Walk for about 5 minutes in the northern west direction from Izanagi Shrine to get here.
