Yuki Hikosaka and Izumi Morito, two of the hottest woodblock print artists of the moment, have beautifully rendered the characteristics of each of children’s favorite rice cakes in their prints.
The beautiful woodblock prints depict the browning and puffing of the rice cake. Once the rice cake is baked, you can make isobeyaki, anko mochi, kinako mochi, and many other delicious-looking rice cakes, and enjoy them.
This picture book is filled with the joy and pleasure of baking and eating rice cakes, a favorite of children.
