22nd Annual Traditional Mochi (rice cake) Pounding for New Year (More "fun stuff" about our mochi pounding) Saturday, Dec. 28th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m.


Akiko's over the years has become synonymous with MOCHI POUNDING. This will be our 22nd year. Started with 23 people, mostly neighbors, and now it has become a popular community and public event. This past year we had between 600-700 folks visit our wee village to participate in mochi pounding and other activities.

Come and join the fun on Saturday, Dec. 28th, from 8 a.m. – 2 p.m. making traditional rice cakes the "old-fashioned" way. Everyone takes their turn at pounding the delicious sticky rice for good luck. Fire building starts at 7 a.m. to steam the rice. Hearty local style lunch for $5. New years crafts, food vendors, fortune telling, massage, I Ching readings, floral arrangements, plantation stories, Okinawan taiko drumming, Hawaiian entertainment & more. Great cultural mix of everything that makes Hawaii so special.

Call Miss Akiko @ (808) 963-6422 or email: here or direct it to msakiko@hawaii.rr.com for more information.
