Coming Up: Mochi Pounding at the Asian Art Museum

Funny that this came across my desk, as I just saw videos of another travel writer pounding mochi in Japan. Well, now we can all try. The Asian Art Museum is hosting its mochi pounding Japanese new year tradition ceremony and you can get in on the action. This sweet rice doughy treat will be pounded (with lots of entertaining ceremony involved) from noon to 1 on January 20.

Please note that this is on the same day as Women’s March at Civic Center (rally at noon, march at 2 pm), so some streets will be closed. The museum emphasizes that their mochi celebration is about community and building intercultural communication through the arts, which connects to the values of the Women’s March: diversity, communication, and a safe space for all cultures. They encourage those attending the march to come, even if you just want to entertain the kids before the walk begins.



When: Saturday, January 20 from noon to 1 - capacity is limited.
11-2 - paper crane folding
Where: Asian Art Museum - 200 Larkin
Cost: free with entrance - kids 12 and under always free
