New Year's Day is an event to welcome the God of the New Year. Kagamimochi (mirror-shaped rice cakes) have been displayed as an offering to the New Year's gods since ancient times. The round shape of the mochi implies "en man円満 (round and peaceful)", and the two mochi stacked on top of each other implies "kasane gasane かさねがさね". The combination of these two words represents growing old and spending the year in peace.
The paper mache mochi is prayed at Manzoku Inari Shrine in Higashiyama, Kyoto. Hariko is a traditional Japanese toy made of Japanese paper. It has a fortune paper inside and can be used as a decoration after the fortune paper has been taken out and read. The fortune paper is written in Japanese.
