Goheimochi (skewered sweet rice cakes served with soy sauce and miso)

This rice cake riginated with mountain workers who would stick the rice on the pieces of wood, bake it and eat it with miso paste in their break times. It has been especially enjoyed in the Tono and Hida Regions, as well as widely throughout the entire prefecture. The sauces are prepared with miso paste, soy sauce, walnut or sesame, while the shapes come in shoe form, round form, etc., depending on the specific area.

A special original sauce from "Egoma" cultivated locally
We began serving the food in 2002 with a desire to popularize "Egoma" grown locally since early times and "Goheimochi" our local home food. It has gained continuing popularity among repeating customers who appreciate its uniqueness and ex-locals returning home on holiday who never fail to buy it.

A happy flavor from baking and an unexpectedly fine taste from eating
Due to its round shape, not sandal shape, the secret sauce nicely wraps the dumpling to draw out the appetite. "Goheimochi" has been consumed as a main food item in Tono Region in addition to as a snack. "Goheimochi-teishoku" is a set meal using the mochi as a main dish.
