Mochi tsuki (rice cake making) Event, co-hosted by Suita City Kishi-ichi and Kishi-ni Regional Community Centers

2019/02/16 UPDATE

   On February 10th, 2019, 3 international students (Olivier Meignein from France, Camilla Timmermans from the Netherlands and Seungjin Han from Korea) participated in the annual mochi tsuki (rice cake making) event held at the Kishi-ichi Regional Community Center in Suita City. They enjoyed tasting the freshly made mochi with several toppings. The most popular topping among them was daikon oroshi (grated daikon radish). Surprisingly anko (sweet bean paste) was the least popular topping. Some said that it was kind of strange that beans taste sweet. After eating the mochi, international students participated in the actual mochi pounding, thanks to the hospitality of the local community. The local people cheered our students by calling out "yoisho" on each pounding. We hope to continue participating in local events like this to facilitate interaction with local people.
