I'm usually pretty simple in my choice, "an mochi", but my favorite is the strawberry an mochi. Shop is small, simple, but staff are nice and friendly. The local family run business is a great asset to HILO.

This is the best mochi on the big island. If you love soft, fresh mochi, and like to try dozens of unique, different flavors, this is a must visit. Makes great gifts, too, though Keep in mind the famous "strawberry mochi" might not make it...More
