Its purpose is to bring the family good health and prosperity in the new year.
Traditionally, Kagami Mochi is made of actual mochi (rice cake). Some areas still make the traditional mochi by hand, but the store-bought plastic ones have become the mainstream and are discarded after use.
As we become more conscious of reducing waste, this beautiful wooden Kagami Mochi is the best replacement as it can be used year after year and handed down to generations!
This Kagami Mochi comes in a custom wooden box and can be broken down into individual pieces for compact storage.
