  3. looks good, what are you grinding?

    • It’s not grinding, but actually pounding white sticky rice with mallets until it becomes a soft dough known as mochi. It’s a Japanese New Year’s tradition that I love! The mochi is served in both sweet and savory ways, and the whole village usually gets involved because it’s such a strenuous activity. Well worth the struggle though!

  4. I was just telling some people tonight about making mochi. :-) Happy 2016, Hannah. May it be filled with many blessings for you.


  5. Beautiful photos, festive and full of life. Thanks for sharing and happy New Year!

  6. Neat photos! I’d never heard of mochi.

  7. Magnificently poetic images Ms Hannah.
