[Mangetsu]Ajyarimochi(Kyoto local speciality) / “[満月]阿闍梨餅”

Ajyari-mochi is famous japanese sweets in Kyoto, and one of the best Japanese sweets I think.
Ajyari-mochi is named because they resemble the conical wicker hat worn by “Ajyari ” (in English Acharya) doing the 1000-day circumambulation at Enryaku-ji temple on Mt. Hiei.


You could get Ajyarimochi at shops of Mangetsu (Maker) or department store.

One of the shops is located at Sanneizaka “産寧坂” near Kiyomizu temple “清水寺”.
