Dear Reader,

Today, my friend Sam and I went to a rice cake pounding festival! We had delicious mochi, and had a lot of fun. It was held by the Japan Alaska Association, we learned a bit about rice pounding, and the traditions of it.

Then, we got to taste it! I kind of preferred this fresh mochi over the kind that you buy in the store. Usually it’s super sweet, but this mochi was plain, but was flavored by the fillings or soup. We tried one with red bean paste, which was super delish!

We also had some kind of mochi and vegetables in a fish broth soup, which was also really yummy! And plain mochi dipped in some starch that tasted like peanut butter.  Sam was not a fan of either of these two dishes, but I quite enjoyed them.

Anyway, it was really interesting, and I had fun! After we ate mochi, we decided to have sushi for dinner. I would have taken pictures of that, but the lighting was awful. . . Anyway, this was just a quick post to share our food adventure!

Have a great week guys, and good luck to any students who are about to face finals! As always, thanks for reading~ bye~

Love,

Rin
