Description

20th Annual Traditional Mochi (rice cake) Pounding for New Year (More "fun stuff" about our mochi pounding) Saturday, Dec. 30th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. Akiko's over the years has become synonymous with MOCHI POUNDING. This will be our 20th year. We started with 23 people, mostly neighbors, and now it has become a popular community and public event.. This past year we had between 600-700 folks visit our wee village to participate in mochi pounding and other activities. Come and join the fun on Saturday, Dec. 30th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. making traditional rice cakes the "old-fashioned" way. Everyone takes their turn at pounding the glutinous sticky rice for good luck. Fire building starts at 7 a.m. to steam the rice. Hearty local style lunch for $5. New years crafts, food vendors, fortune telling, massage, I Ching readings, floral arrangements, plantation stories, Okinawan taiko drumming, Hawaiian entertainment & more. Great cultural mix of everything that makes Hawaii so special.
