Ichinoseki and mochi go hand-in-hand as the city continues to pride itself on promoting and preserving its prevalent mochi culture. This sticky-rice delicacy is not only a quintessential part of traditional 'washoku' (Japanese cuisine), but its versatility allows it to evolve.
There is no better way to show-case this than at the Ichinoseki Mochi Summit. This event brings local mochi enthusiasts and those from all over Japan together to show off their special creations. Schedule for 2021 tba (16/17 Oct are the tentative dates)
