What is Kagamimochi?

Kagami mochi is used as a traditional Japanese New Year decoration. It is usually made up of two layers of round mochi (rice cake) topped with a mandarin.

Kagami” means “mirror” in Japanese, and it is often said that its shape resembles a bronze mirror, which was considered a treasure by the ancient Japanese. It is believed that by double decking such noble items, your fortune will also double. The mandarin on top is called dai-dai and it is supposed to give hope and prosperity to the following descendants. All this makes kagami mochi a very lucky item.

Kagami mochi is usually decorated with Japanese decorative paper, ferns, and dried kelp. However, decorations vary from region to region and family to family.
