Mochitsuki Festival – Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachimangu

10:00am – 12:00pm
Free

Ichigaya Kamegaoka Hachimangu shrine near Ichigaya Station will hold a mochitsuki taikai – a mochi making festival on the Emperor’s birthday holiday.

The pounding of rice into sticky mounds of mochi will start at 10am and continue until they run out of rice to hammer. Normally at these festivals, there are plenty of opportunities for the public to have a go if you wait patiently in line. You’ll also get  chance to try “fresh” mochi.

 

Organizers may cancel events, alter schedules, or change admission requirements without notice. Always check official sites before heading to an event.
