No better way to enjoy the last month of summer than with LOTS OF MOCHI!! 😋 @Michaelindsay89 and I have been looking for a great mochi ice cream for a lonnng time, and we finally found one! We love @bubbies ❤️
If you haven’t tried mochi ice cream before, it’s basically rich ice cream neatly tucked in a soft and chewy sweetened rice dough, and it’s AMAZING! 😍💕

The other day I was at @candyality in Chicago’s Andersonville neighborhood, when I saw a sign that they now sell mochi ice cream. For those unfamiliar, that’s ice cream-stuffed mochi (pounded glutinous rice). Mochi ice cream was invented at Mikawaya, one of the oldest extant Japanese American confectionaries, in Los Angeles’ Little Tokyo.
Mikawaya was founded in 1910 by Ryuzaburo Hashimoto. When he returned to Japan in 1925, he passed the shop to his nephew Koroku. Together with his wife Haru, he operated it until WWII, when they were unjustly incarcerated at Poston concentration camp in Arizona.
Reopening in 1945, in 1970 their daughter, Poston-born Frances Hashimoto, became the third generation of Hashimotos to operate Mikawaya in J-town. She expanded to locations in other Nikkei communities such as Gardena, Torrance, and Honolulu, and opened an industrial baking facility in LA. In the early 1990s, she introduced mochi ice cream, an invention whose popularity would ultimately transcend the Nikkei community.
After Frances’ untimely passing in 2012 at the age of 69, in 2015 Mikawaya was bought by Century Park Capital Partners, a private equity firm that transitioned Mikawaya into a brand of The Mochi Ice Cream Company. My/Mo was subsequently developed as a sister brand.
While perhaps easier for most Americans to pronounce than Mikawaya, My/Mo also expands upon the flavors of the original mochi ice cream, which stuck closer to an Asian palate with green tea, red bean, and mango being among the popular early varieties. My/Mo also offers non-dairy and vegan options utilizing cashew cream.
Though no longer owned by the Hashimotos, Mikawaya remains in Little Tokyo as they have for 108 years. And now you can get their mochi ice cream, rebranded as My/Mo, in a variety of flavors, at retailers across the U.S and Canada.
Even as the Nikkei commercial presence in Chicago wanes, vestiges of our community remain, perhaps where our forebears always wanted, properly integrated into mainstream culture.

If I could have only one type of dessert available for the rest of my life, this would be it. Mochi Ice Cream. What is your favorite flavor? #GreenTea for me with Chocolate and Mango tied for second. #mochiicecream
Sorry for massive upload now (and the coming uploads), I love to use geotag on my instagram posts to remember where I've been etc, which works better when I'm currently in the city. We're soon heading to san fransisco 💃
A place that is mixed with snackplace and shop, and so is the interior. Somehow not unified interior. Otherwise clean and fresh.
It was great to have many mochi ice cream flavours to choose from (1.50 USD/per mochi) but the mochis had thicker rice cake part than usual and was coated with way too much rice flour. Mostly tasted rice flour at the first bite. Coffee mochi and mint chocolate mochi had ice cream tasting like typical ice crean flavours. The red bean was... still non-tasting. Or it had some kind of weird aftertaste that cannot be described.
I took a risk and married this one before he had ever been to a Disney park. Risky, I know 😉. This April, we made our first, of many, trip to Disney and it was oh so magical. I didn’t think Disney could be any sweeter, but there’s something to be said about seeing someone love fall in love with the parks for the first time. For now, his favorite spots are my favorite spots, we’ll see how those evolve over trips to come! ♥️ Mochi at the Japan Pavilion, nothing better
