(304) So, where is the rice?

It is a Japanese holiday so rice must be involved, right? (OK, there isn’t a rule or anything but it happens quite often) For Children’s Day, there is “chimaki” (ちまき/粽) that is, rice like that used for mochi pastries mixed with various other ingredients (meat, chicken, beans etc.) and wrapped in bamboo leaves.
