餅:もち;MOCHI is often translated as "rice cake". It is actually mashed rice.

Just after steamed, hot rice is made into MOCHI.



Three ways to enjoy MOCHI. After slowly grilled, the surface of MOCHI is hardened and the MOCHI will be swelled by steam inside. The yellow powder in the movie is "KINA-KO" which is soybean powder.

5 ways to enjoy MOCHI:



And also I would like to add one more way to enjoy MOCHI. I tried MOCH with tomato ketchup. It is very strange as a Japanese food but in another sense it can be openning of different world of taste. Please try it to test your braveness.

if you are very hungry and having a few money in Japan, you should run into KONBINI (convenience store) and buy one "ONIGIRI".

To buy "ONIGIRI", just bring it to register counter and say "ONEGAI SHIMASU" meaning "please". It will cost you 80 to 200 JPY.

After buying it, you may eat it during walking around. Though Japanese will not eat something during walk, "ONIGIRI" would be allowed.

Oh very interesting.
But ... when in japanese do you use KUDASAI? Is a less formal way to ask please? I admit I'm a bit confused about it.

"KUDASAI" corresponds to "give me" and needs object. When you use "KUDASAI", you need to add object and object marker like as "KORE(this) WO(object marker) KUDASAI" (give me this).

Instead, I recommend "ONEGAI SHIMASU" which can be used like as "Bitte" in German.

My favorite simple japanese food is mitarashi dango. You make the dango by combining mochiko and water. That's it. The sauce is just a simple sweet soy sauce, combined it's delicious!
