Mochi-Tsuki at Midwest Buddhist Temple | Chicago Akido Club

If you’re in the Chicago area on Saturday you might want to drop in at Chicago’s Midwest Buddhist Temple to participate in the pounding of rice with large wooden mallets. The event is known as the Mochi-tsuki Festival and the result is rice cakes. It begins at 8:30 am, is open to the public and it’s FREE! Looks like fun!
