Tokyo:
Friendship Chiyoda "Mochi Tsuki"
================================
Mochi-tsuki, or pounding rice to make mochi (rice cakes) is a traditional event. A special type of sticky rice soaked in water overnight and steamed is placed in an usu, (a large wooded mortar) and gkinneh(a large heavy, hammer-like wooden pestle) is used to pound the rice in a steady rhythm by one or more people as another turns the paste until smooth.

Mochi-tsuki is a party-like social function with work and play combined and everyone will taste the product of their labors with various flavorings!

With professional guidance you can also try making Japanese sweets with "mochi". And for children, a lot of fun in a Japanese traditional way!

We are also expecting Hosei University's Sumo-bu to join us and even "sumo" with the children.

-Date/Time: February 23rd (Sat) 13:30pm - 16:00pm
