Mochi-tsuki* and New Year Party (Richmond)
January 6, 2008
exciting annual event has been a JVS tradition for many years.
We again had an unprecedented number of participants this year - 353.
Young and old (some from
together at Kabuto South, a Japanese restaurant, on the first
of the year. The day was filled with great times and tasty treats. The
mochi-tsuki demonstration calls for a pair of real wooden
and a mallet (see the link Mochi-tsuki).
Some lucky people went home
full of smiles and the prize of free air tickets thanks to the fun raffle that was held.
look forward to having you at our next Mochi-tsuki & New
