<Mochitsuki (Mochi Pounding)>
Mochitsuki is a one of the traditional activities of the New Year celebration in Japan.
The cooked rice is pounded by two people with a wooden hammer (KINE) in a traditional large wooden bowl (USU).
One person pounds the mochi with a KINE and the other one wets and repositions the mochi between each stroke.
They must keep a steady rhythm.
Enjoy powerful performance and fresh and fluffy taste of mochi after that!!

<Shishimai Lion Dance & Taiko Performance>
Shishimai is the Japanese national art performance that started from the Edo period.
It represents banishing of the devil and celebrating livelihood.
Please enjoy this vigorous performance with Japanese Taiko.
