Title:

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

Caption:

When the Mochi is perfectly round, it is ready. It can be cooked one more time over the fire, boiled in soup, filled with sweet bean paste or dried for later consumption.
Mochi making is a tradition still practiced in the country-side. All locals say that hand-made Mochi (traditional Japanese rice cakes) taste much better. It is an important New Year's tradition for many families.
