“Making Mochi at Kodo Village” by Yutaka Teramoto
We just had our annual new-year Mochi-tsuki Taikai (event where we make mochi: pounded rice cake) at Kodo Village.
All the Kodo members and staff gathered to pound the steamed rice into mochi outside the Kodo Village dining room.
The mochi-making team leader this year was performer Tetsumi Hanaoka (pictured right).
We all enjoyed the freshly made mochi for lunch. It was delicious!
