What looks like a large drop of water is actually a cake! It’s called Mizu Shingen Mochi and it’s so delicate it needs to be consumed in less than 30 minutes, after which it will turn into a sweet puddle of water! The cake is clear and jelly-like, and served with a sugar syrup and kinako, a roasted soybean flour that is often served with other types of mochi. Is it worth it? Well, if you like eating future food it is. Therefore yes, it’s worth it.
If you don’t want to travel to Japan, drive two hours, climb a mountain and wait in line for an hour, then just make it yourself at home by following this simple video with random measurements and very little direction.
