Mochitsuki 2008 at Expo House

It was really great for me to have a chance to join Mochitsuki – making sticky rice event – at Expo House at the end of 2008. Although it was my second time, I really had a lot of fun as much as last year or even more.

First I am so happy to not only know about one of Japanese traditions but also to participate in it. As far as I understand, there are three important stages in making mochi: Cooking the rice, pounding the rice and finally forming the pounded sticky rice into different shapes for eating. Different stages give different levels of fun. For me, I love the second stage best when I had to use a heavy wooden hammer hitting the rice in a stone bowl. Second mochitsuki, in my opinion, is more than just making sticky rice. It is solidarity work and this kind solidarity work is especially meaningful when there is a mixture of different nationalities. And I believe this is the beauty of mochituki at Expo House. This year around 20 people of almost 10 nationalities participated in this activity and I am so glad to be part of it.
