The 24th Yokohama Fathering Association event “mochi pounding” was held successfully.
The myth that causes the weather become sunny for the event of this association was overturned in the summer event, but this time, it was true. People are quite used “mochi pounding” because this event has been held every year.
The fathers know what should they do, so I am feeling that we got strong histological power. They enjoyed their group works that is the concept of this association, and it was really good time.
I could have more free time than before, because they moved very voluntarily. It’s fine to make new plan, but a event such as annual event has different meaning like a progress or good change. Children seemed to be enjoying to play with their friends in a park, but I felt more potential for them, because they grew up, so I think it will be better that if there is something like that children can do. Maybe I will think that something next time.
I appreciate contribution of rice from a family of a participants every year. Sad to say, great-grandmother of participant’s child passed away, she gave rice for this event every year. She rejoiced that her great-grandchildren will enjoy the event ‘mochi pounding’, and she offered the contribution of rice with pleasure. I was really encouraged. Recently these events like supplying something food tend to discontinue for avoiding risks of infectious disease. But, I will try to continue the event because people want it. I really appreciate her and her family.
Also, I’d like to thank people live in arround the park, they rented us mortar and pestle every year.
I’d like to thank rapid response of Kohoku-ku Yokohama Civil Engineering Office.
Also, Kanagawa Technical High-School rented us huge cauldron. Thank you very much.
I’d like to thank all participant’s cooperation, absolutely.
We are planing creating kites as next event. It’s still undecided, but it will be 19th or 26th, Feb.
Of course, we are planing huge picture of cherry blossom event. It’s also 19th or 26th, but it’s in March.
I will inform in this site when the detail is decided.
