Visiting Mount Takao? Goma Dango is a must-try! The sesame dumpling is a traditional Japanese confectionary made from rice flour. It’s the perfect snack to have before your climb – it’ll give you the energy you need to make it to the top!

My favorite shop to enjoy this is Gongen Chaya, which is well known for its tasty food, great service and warm hospitality.

For just 300 yen, you can enjoy chewy Dango served with a generous amount of sesame. The aroma of the sesame is enough to whet your appetite – simply delicious! Pair that with Yaso-cha or wild herb tea (served for free) and enjoy!

By the way, if you like the taste of sesame, you can find other interesting sesame-related food items at the shop, like sesame ramen or gelato sprinkled with sesame seeds!

So do visit the shop to enjoy Dango and the rest of the menu, it’s the perfect place to stop by whether you’re going up or down the mountain!

高尾山登山客の間で、「定番」となっているアイテムといえば、ゴマ団子。
ゴマがたっぷり、香ばしくて、モッチリとした食感が魅力です。
ゴマの香りが食欲をそそります。
お腹を空かした登山客&今から登山をする登山客にとっては“腹ごしらえ”の
マストアイテム(300円程度)です。

ここの権現茶屋(Gongen Chaya)は、長年、登山客をおもてなしするスポットして
有名です。ここでは、団子だけでなく、登山客には無料で“野草茶”を配るなど
そのホスピタリティの高さに驚くお店です。
登山前後に、ぜひ寄ってみて、元気をつけてください。

ちなみに…
このお店では、ゴマラーメンを提供したり、ゴマふりかけをかけて食べるジェラートなど…
とにかくゴマにこだわりを持っています。
団子だけではなく、他のメニューも楽しんでてください。
