Mochi ice cream in Tokyo?

bluepig1 | Nov 28, 2009 04:55 AM

Can anyone recommend a specific specialty mochi ice cream place in/around Shinjuku? Yukimi daifuku, I believe - I've made do so far during this trip to Tokyo with the Lotte version sold in convenience stores. I'm specifically looking for the ice cream version.

However, a search of this board suggests previous recommendations for Mochi Cream, a store with a wide variety of gourmet ice cream flavors, with rumors of a few locations around Shinjuku, most notably in the food basement of Mitsukoshi Alcott and at least one other near either the South or Northeast exit of Shinjuku station. I went looking for any of the locations this evening and struck out - not sure if they've closed, I had bad info, or I just wasn't looking in the right places. Sounds like there might still be a location in Narita Terminal 2, but I'm hoping for something before I leave...

Any other specialty shops? Prefer Shinjuku (we are staying at Sunroute Plaza) but could be open to other large areas. Mentions of department store basements would be helpful if you could confirm the specific store name and whether the store is still there as I've wandered a bit through several already with no luck.
