We decorate these rice cake for 10 days and eat them after decorating. These become hard after 10 days so that the foreign guests were surprised when I explained we would eat after 10days decorating. One of Don'ts is not cut it with a knife to prevent from breaking holy power which has been decorated as offerings. We have to make small pieces by hands and hammers. We may serve Mochi (Rice cake) desserts to share happiness with people after 10th January as we do every year.
