Last week’s post was about Shinjuku (しんじゅく / 新宿), so this week I need to start with く (ku). Thank you all for your suggestions: ラマタ with Kurisumasu (クリスマス / Christmas), japanaustralia with kutsu (くつ / shoes), kuma (くま / bear) or kumo (くも / cloud), and zoomingjapan with Ku-ru bizu (クールビズ / Cool Biz). They were all great suggestions! I particularly wanted to write about Cool Biz, but when I thought ahead to next week I couldn’t think of anything beginning with ズ (zu). So, in the end I decided to just do a quick post about…
Kuzumochi (くずもち / 葛餅)
I’ve never tried to make any Japanese sweets except Japanese style pancakes, but I’d love to try making kuzumochi one day. I found brilliant step-by-step instructions here.
If you’re in the UK and want to buy kuzumochi, it’s available to buy in this kit from the Japan Centre for just £2.96.
Kuzumochi (くずもち) ends with ち (chi), so next week I will be looking for a noun beginning with “chi”. If you have any suggestions, please leave them below and I’ll give you a mention next week! And, don’t forget, no words ending in ん! (^_^)v
