Venue Info

One of Japantown’s first businesses, Benkyoto first opened in 1906 and has been passed down through three generations of the Okamura family since. Handmade mochi and manju reign supreme at Benkyodo, with delicate and tasty red bean paste like you’ve never had before. At a buck a pop, it’s easy to course through multiple flavors of mochi, and even save a little room for a Japanese donut.
