Today’s picture: Kagami mochi (鏡餅)
This year I brought a kagami mochi to place in my house for good luck. It’s a traditional Japanese New Year decoration. The new year’s spirit will visit your home to bring good luck into the new year.
After early January you can take down the decoration and eat the mochi inside. I can’t wait to try it.
In one Japanese shop was selling a very large kagami mochi for $100. I’m happy with my small and cheaper kagami mochi.
