Mii-dera Chikaramochi was founded in the second year of the Meiji era and is the birthplace of Mii-dera Chikaramochi, a product that has become famous in Otsu. The shop is named in honor of Musashibo Benkei, the immensely strong man who dragged Mii-dera Temple's bell to Mt. Hiei. The traditional handmade technique used to make Mii-dera Chikaramochi has been passed down from generation to generation and has become known for its simple, rustic hometown taste. Chikaramochi is a fresh, made-to-order mochi which uses honey and a green soy bean powder topping. The mochi does not contain any additives or preservatives.
