Shingen mochi is a popular mochi or rice cake snack from Yamanashi. It gets its name from the famous daimyo, Takeda Shingen. The mochi is served with kuromitsu, a black Japanese sugar syrup, and kinako, roasted soybean flour. The mochi itself is usually translucent but packaged with the kinako covering the mochi. The kuromitsu is usually packaged in a separate small container. A small wooden flat stick is also usually packaged with the mochi to cut and eat the mochi with.
