Fresh mochi, a type of traditional Japanese rice cake, is sliced and sampled Dec. 16, 2010, by those attending the annual mochi pounding ceremony at the Japan Air Self-Defense Force gym on Misawa Air Base, Japan. The ceremony gave Americans a chance to experience a time-honored Japanese tradition. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Samuel Morse)
