January 7, 2007
exciting annual event has been a JVS tradition for many years.
had an unprecedented number of participants this year -300. Itís
only record-breaking news, but also a great way to kick off the
Young and old (some from

mochi-tsuki demonstration calls for a pair of real wooden
and a mallet (see the link Mochi-tsuki).
