This was taken by Teresa Matsushima and is one of two photos submitted for Discover Nikkei’s Nima-kai 2020-2021 Oshogatsu Traditions photo activity. ***** After making a batch of komochi, my daughter suggested this idea. We wrapped a slice of bacon around one piece of Mochi and pan fried it on medium heat until the bacon was browned and crisp and the Mochi softened. Wow, dah best! As a sansei, we are always looking to eat traditional Japanese New Years food with a little twist.
