Hello this is masa at Shibuya  Business Garden.

Kagamimochi are sets of two round, flat rice cakes,
in which a smaller one is placed on top of a larger one.

Mochi has been considered a sacred food since ancient times because
rice cultivation has always been indispensable for the Japanese.

Kagamimochi are placed in the tokonoma, a sacred alcove and offered at
a Shinto altar.

On the 11th of January kagamimochi are split by hand or hammer,
cooked and served with stewed red beans and sugar.

This event is called kagamibiraki.
