In Japan, the New Year, known as "Oshogatsu," extends beyond the ticking clock, blending solemn rituals, lively festivities, and, of course, a culinary journey that adds irresistible layers to the celebrations. At the heart of this culinary delight is mochi, it holds cultural significance in Japan and is especially popular during celebrations and festive occasions.
How Mochi Adds Flavor to New Year Celebration in Japan?
Mochi, a traditional Japanese delight crafted from glutinous rice, boasts a rich cultural history. Within the realm of mochi, "Kagami mochi" stands out as a time-honoured dessert integral to Japanese New Year celebrations. Traditionally, Kagami mochi is a white treat made of two layers of steamed mochi, with the top layer slightly smaller compared to the base.
The dessert holds profound cultural significance, symbolizing the intersection of the past and upcoming year. Kagami mochi is believed to represent the confluence of happiness and fortune, ushering in luck, prosperity, and resolutions for the New Year.
