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.
