Japan Traviary - Nara In Nara, at last, we were lucky enough to witness the so-called legendary mochi pounding process show. It was amusing and creative. I called them 'ha-ya, ha-ya' men. They were perfectly synchronized to each other while hit and pound the greenish chunk of mochi without a miss. The natural color of mochi is made from a plant called yomogi (mugwort). Inside of mochi is a generous filling of red bean paste. Besides, kinoko (roasted soybean flour) will dust on mochi before serve. It only cost for130 yen. The taste was just unbelievably good. Mochi was chewy and soft, the sweetness was on the dot as well. When everything comes together in a bite, heaven found.
The pounding process show is not frequent. Needs to base on your luck or wait for it.
