New Year’s Mochi


On January 2nd, as we were having a walk around Sunport (that I don’t see this often anymore now that I live “inland”), we stumbled upon a Mochi making demonstration.

It has accompanied by a Shamisen ensemble coming from Mima, Tokushima.

Of course at the end, the attendance was offered with some of the Mochi that has just been made.


(although I have to admit that I’m not crazy about Mochi, don’t tell any Japanese person)

    1. I don’t hate Mochi (nor Ozoni) but I find them a bit underwhelming for such important food on a symbolical level.
      (also, there must be a cultural difference here, in France, New Year’s Eve is usually one of the best meals of the year)
