Mochitsuki Rice Pounding Event
If you enjoy the sweet sticky joy that is mochi rice cakes, we have a great event for you at Japan Centre this weekend! To coincide with the Japanese New Year tradition of mochitsuki, where sweet glutinous rice is pounded into a sticky cake, Japan Centre will be holding our own mochitsuki ceremony so you can see what it is all about!
This is a great opportunity to check out an authentic Japanese tradition and try some mochi if you have never tasted it before.
We will also be giving out some free samples of amazake, a sweet, low-alcohol type of sake. Be sure to join us for a chance to get a taste!
