Pounding mochi builds a friendship

Our new year's first guests are such nice people from Singapore!

We shared a lovely time with the local host Mr.Tanaka and his family, enjoyed Mochi-Making, Miso Soup Cooking and Tea Ceremony.

We also visited the sake brewery which is not usually open to the public.  

Pure fresh sake, friendly local people and sharing the same value with the wonderful guests warmed up our body & soul despite the chilly weather outside.
