Mochi tsuki

Mochi tsuki 2

Originally uploaded by SOFennell

“Mochi” is the special pounded rice or rice cake made in preparation for the New Year. “Tsukuru” is the verb for making, in this case “making or pounding ‘mochi.’

I missed the event last year and regretted it, so this year I really wanted to attend. It makes the holiday, as far as I’m concerned – just personal.

I love the taste of fresh mochi and then, have such good memories of “zenzai.” It isn’t an everyday event.
