Shingen mochi from Kikyouya

Shingen mochi is one of the most famous Japanese traditional sweets in Yamanashi prefecture which is very popular for souvenirs, named after a historical warlord Takeda Shingen.

There are three bite-size pieces of tender mochi (rice cake) with kinako (soy bean flour)
inside of the box wrapped in pretty furoshiki wrapper.

There is a hamburger restaurant close to the post office in Shibuya called Whoopi GoldBURGER. The name is a twist on the name of the actor Whoopi Goldberg, it’s a very unique name for a restaurant, but the hamburgers are very tasty!

The basic hamburger is the “Whoopi GoldBURGER”, the double patty is called the “Sarah Jessica BURGER”, the triple patty is the “Charlotte GainsBURGER”, the chili flavor is the “Steven SoderBURGER” and mashed potatoes are called “Natalie POTATOman”. There was also a bacon burger called the “Kevin Bacon”.
