Yakimochi is literally grilled or broiled mochi or pounded rice cake. Traditionally, it is prepared using a small charcoal grill but in modern times a gas grill can be used. During the time of the Autumn Moon it is traditional to eat fresh yakimochi while sipping sake and enjoying the view of the full moon.


Yakimochi can be prepared several ways:

  • "Isobemaki" is yakimochi that has been grilled with soy sauce and then wrapped in nori seaweed.
  • "Abekawa yakimochi" is broiled mochi that is soaked in hot water and then covered with a mixture of sugar and kinako, a type of bean powder.
