"Takasago Arare" is a rice cake snack made using old-fashioned recipes, steamed with two types of domestically produced glutinous rice cooked in a bamboo steamer (seiro). By the skilled sense of craftsmen’s delicate hand feeling and interacting with the mochi, rice cakes (kimochi) are carefully made to manufacture.

Currently sold at a factory’s direct sales store. Everyone can try it! At the entrance of the shop, a flag printed with design "Takasago Boat" which was used for packaging when exporting products to the United States is adorned and you can feel the history.
