Ohagi|Red Bean Sweets for Autumnal Equinox Day

September 23 is an ‘AUTUMNAL EQUINOX DAY’, a national holiday and officially the end of the summer season.  It is also a time for visiting our ancestors’ graves and making OHAGI (also called BOTAMOCHI) – which is a sticky rice red bean cake as a sign of everyday gratitude.


Sticky rice covered with sweet red beans (left and right column) and red beans paste in the inside covered with kinako-a soybean flour (middle column).
