Mochi Barrel - Japanese Cultural Traditions in Cleveland

<p>This collection begins with one object from the collections of the Cleveland History Center - a <em>usu</em>, or stamp mill, that is used to make <em>mochi</em>, a type of Japanese rice cake.  Building from that one object, this collection also explores the history of the family who owned and used this item, the cultural traditions associated with the <i>mochi</i>-making ceremony that the family maintained years after their arrival in the United States, and how the Japanese-American population in Cleveland grew considerably during and after World War II.  </p><p>#APA2018</p>
