PEACH LIVE

PEACH LIVE

A taste of Niigata made by traditional methods with ingredients produced in the prefecture
is realized through the careful work of craftsmen.

Sasadango (162 yen/ piece) made the traditional way by a rice-cake shop established in the 16th year of Meiji (1883). Koshihikari and Koganemochi brand rice are ground in a stone mill, and blended with mugwort leaves produced in the prefecture. Then, the dumplings are steamed while wrapped in Veitch’s bamboo leaves from the base of Mt. Asahidake to create the flavorful and springy taste.

The shop sign makes us feel the history of the long-established shop. Folkcraft articles related to mochi rice cakes, which the fifth-generation shop owner collected from his travels, are exhibited in the shop window.

Mamedaifuku (140 yen/ piece) are made each day, and they invariably sell out before closing time. After these mochi become hard, you can toast them and they are delicious served that way.
