we made Tsukimi* dango**!
Dango are surprisingly simple
to make, aren’t they!
Back in elementary school, I picked
up the trick to making dango
in the sports pitch making mud balls!
By the way, the ones above are made by Kame,
The bottom ones are made by me!
Stacking them up!
They’re going to topple!
We got someone to make the mitarashi sauce****
Everyone ate it and it
was really delicious!
Everyone, please try to make some
of your own next year
*Tsukimi is a festival that celebrates the moon that’s celebrated every year on the 15th of August and the 15th of September in Japan.
**Dango are glutinous rice balls that are traditionally made on Tsukimi.
***She used まるまるもりもり (marumarumorimori) which sort of means rounded swellings but in a cuter way.
****Mitarashi Sauce is a sweet caramel sauce that’s usually used to glaze the dango.
