One of the Japanese customs during the new year is creating rice cakes (餅, mochi). Boiled sticky rice (餅米, mochigome) is put into a wooden shallow bucket-like container and patted with water by one person while another person hits it with a large wooden mallet. Mashing the rice, it forms a sticky white dumpling. This is made before New Year’s Day and eaten during the beginning of January.
Mochi is made into a New Year’s decoration called kagami mochi (鏡餅), formed from two round cakes of mochi with a tangerine (橙, daidai) placed on top. The name daidai is supposed to be auspicious since it means “several generations.”
