かしわもち

kashiwa mochi

kashiwamochi

We eat Kashiwa mochi on Japanese children’s day, that is 5th May.

However, for me this is already second time eating Kashiwa mochi, this season. yummy!

kashiwa = oak

mochi = rice cake

a soft rice cake stuffed with sweetened bean paste and wrapped in an oak leaf.

Since oak trees don’t shed old leaves until new leaves grow, Japanese consider oak trees as a symbol of the prosperity of one’s descendants.
