Making a sweet “Goma-Mochi”

I kneaded each black and white “Goma”, means sesame, into dough of “Mochi”, means rice cake, then rolled them and cut it.

It is a local sweet of Odate and the surrounding area.

Akita butterbur-printed “Tenugui”, Japanese hand towel

Akita butterbur is giant enough to stand in for umbrella.

I always buy Tenugui of local design when travelling around Japan.
