A rice cake only made in Ogawa area, Sagawamachi
The strain lees of soybeans when making tofu is called “okara”. It used to be called “kirazu” a long time ago. Back then people used to make tofu before the new year. Some households specialized in grinding soybeans, and each household brought 1 sho (1800cc) of soybean to have them grounded. People made mochi (cakes) out of the “okara” produced from making tofu, and ate them on new year’s day together with tofu.
