Misawa Photos

Local bonds strengthened, celebrated through New Year’s tradition

Japan Air Self-Defense Force volunteers mold mochi into balls during the annual Mochi Pounding Ceremony at Misawa Air Base, Japan, Dec. 15, 2015. After the mochi is made, it is traditionally eaten in a soup called “zoni” and paired with fish and vegetables or in a sweet red-bean soup.
