More Activites during the break

Mochi, Mochi, Mochi

 Mochi rice is washed, soaked, then steamed in seiro, square wooden boxes.
First batches are pounded by hand.
Sensei shapes the okasane mochi for the altar.
Hot mochi is shaped by hands that soon become red from the heat.

After the okasane are done, komochi are made for ozoni.
