The people of Suō-Ōshima hold many “Mochi-maki” (mochi rice cake throwing) events!

In what seems to be the Suō-Ōshima way, every single event including Shinto rituals, Buddhist services, celebrations, festivals, etc., finishes with the throwing of Mochi!

“Aren’t you going to Mochi-maki?”

If you can memorize the annual Mochi-maki event schedule, you might be accepted as a true Suō-Ōshima islander!

The people of Yamaguchi prefecture love Mochi-maki so much they even host the “World Mochi-hiroi (mochi catching) championships”.

The biggest island in Yamaguchi, Suō-Ōshima, is the Mochi throwing capital of Japan!
