Enjoy traditional New Year's celebrations at Sengan-en
Join us for Mochi-Tsuki at Sengan-en!
We will be pounding rice into delicious rice cakes which you can then enjoy with traditional zenzai sweet bean soup and a tipple of local Kagoshima shochu.
Making mochi rice cakes is a traditional activity at New Year in Japan.
Special mochi rice is pounded in a mortar called an usu with a wooden hammer called a kine.
Visitors to the gardens will also be able to try their hand at pounding the rice along with the staff here at Sengan-en.
