Matsuyama Shoten

There's nothing like freshly grilled mochi dipped in locally made soy sauce!

Kawagoe is full of temples to explore, and Renkeiji is one of them. It is a five minute walk from Honkawagoe station, and within the gates there lies a dango store that both locals and visitors adore. For just 80 yen a stick, people can get chunky, bite sized pieces of “mitarashi dango”, mochi dumplings coated with a sweet soy sauce glaze. You can eat in the store, but just be warned that it is small and it would be just as exciting to order it to go to explore other areas. Make sure all of the eating is done before going further into the shrine-- some people might see it as a sign of disrespect. It is a quick, easy, delicious snack to pick up while enjoying the sights at Kawagoe!
