Here in the UK, we know how hard it can be to find authentic Japanese products, especially during a pandemic. Thankfully our sweet tooth doesn’t have to suffer.

AI NO MOCHI, a London based Japanese Artisan was introduced by two friends in January 2016 to perfect the craft involved with making traditional Japanese mochi(もち). Hayyan and Kelly quickly found their passion and embarked on a mission to create this authentic Japanese dessert, right here in London.
