People Monday – New Year Rice Cake Making

New Year Rice Cake Making, originally uploaded by anthonli.

It’s that time of the year in Japan when people of all walks of life prepare to celebrate the New Year (it’s way bigger over there than Christmas)
Here the owner of a company is preparing rice cakes by pounding the dough with a mallet, as the employees and their family look on.
They did invite me to their year end celebration afterwards. And after, they would go off for their year end holiday. During which, most of Japan will come to a standstill as companies close for their employees to take a break.
