    Fogetsu-Do is an ancient mochi bakery that is probably older than your grandparents are. The business is family-run by down-to-earth people. They make the mochi in-house so it is as fresh as can be. You can taste the quality in the first bite, especially with the red bean filling. Their method of making mochi is traditional, so you know what they say, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it!"

    Parking is on the street and only by meter, but it is free on Sundays. They have so many mochi to choose from that it would be hard to walk away with just a few selections. For those wondering how the quality compares to the supermarket, it is like comparing day to night. Prices are very reasonable: only a little over a buck each for their regular sizes and smaller ones are usually sold as a pack.

    Tips: On a hot day, go to Mikawaya for their ice cream Mochi; on a cold day, head to Fugetsu-Do, and you are good to go, year round, for all of your mochi needs.

    Best place to get mochi/manju in the city, if not the whole state (or country). This Little Tokyo institution has been passed down from generation to generation since 1903 and is still family owned and run! You're not gonna find a more fresh mochi/manju anywhere else.

    Best mochi & manju we've ever had, and they were really helpful when we explained we were vegan. We still had 20 or so flavours to choose from. On their advice we frozen the mochi we bought on the Saturday, and thawed it out on the Thursday for Thanksgiving - it still tasted fresh.
