Sakura mochi in Vancouver?

YVRChow Apr 12, 2012 03:57 PM

Has anyone seen sakura mochi available in the Vancouver area this year? I remember getting them in the past, but I can't remember where.

Details: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sakuramochi

Thank you for any hot leads!

    Was it at Kei's? For leads - perhaps you can call Nikkei Centre. (They have a New Year mochitsuki end of Dec every year.)

      I think it may have been Kei's - good call!

      I successfully tracked them down at Konbiniya downtown. They had a Hokkaido produced version that was done in Kansai style.

      Thank you!
