Centuries in Every Bite: Aito Denki Mochi’s Time-Honored Craftsmanship

In Tokyo’s Yoyogi-Hachiman, “Aito Denki Mochi” offers a brief yet delightful experience with fresh daifuku that lasts only five hours. Crafted daily with century-old precision, these daifuku are meticulously made from 100% glutinous rice, showcasing culinary artistry refined over generations.

What sets Aito Denki Mochi apart isn’t just its additive-free appeal but the result of over a century of perfected techniques. The taste of mochi rice, much like white rice, undergoes changes influenced by factors such as “moisture content” and “cooking method.” Conveniently situated just a three-minute walk from Yoyogi-Hachiman Station, Aito Denki Mochi seamlessly blends the nuances of “cooking” and “pounding,” offering a range of flavors and softness. Patrons can easily reserve products through the LINE official account to navigate the bustling storefront.


In Japanese culture, Aito Denki Mochi holds a cherished role as a custodian of traditional confectionery, with daifuku symbolizing happiness in celebrations like New Year’s.

Enveloped in an irresistible aura of softness and flavor, Aito Denki Mochi is adored by many. Why not succumb to its charm and experience it firsthand?


Aito Denki Mochi traces its origins to Shishido Denki Mochi, established in 1916 during the Taisho era in Minamisoma City, Fukushima Prefecture. Motivated by a pandemic-inspired return to Fukushima, the owner apprenticed at the century-old establishment, inheriting its legacy. Utilizing premium Kogane Mochi from Niigata Prefecture and pioneering electric mochi-pounding during the Taisho era, the shop earned the name “Denki Mochi.” Affectionately known as the elusive “phantom daifuku,” it boasts a five-hour shelf life.
