Title:

Mochi (Traditional Japanese Rice Cakes), Fukuoka, Kyushu, Japan.

Caption:

Mochi making is a tradition that brings family together before Oshogatsu (the New Year). Here eighteen-month old Kazuki learns how to pound the rice from his grand-father. He is very focused on the action and intrigued by the sticky paste clinging to the tip of the wood "hammer." The wood is dipped in water, and the rice needs to be pounded quickly for it not to stick.
