Mochi Order Form
Please forward completed forms to Tom Yamaguchi, Kho Iseda, or Billy Saeki.


  • Make all checks payable to Venice Hongwanji ABA.
  • The person ordering the mochi is responsible for delivery of their respective orders.
  • Please prepare a separate form for any orders which will be picked up by someone other than yourself, i.e., do not combine orders that are to be picked up separately on the same form.
  • Orders will be filled on a “First Come, First Served” basis as we will only have a limited amount of mochi available.
  • We cannot guarantee fulfillment of orders place just before or after the deadline date if the number of orders received matches the amount we expect to produce. All such orders will be placed on a wait list and will be fulfilled after regular orders have been processed.

Pick up Saturday, December 3, 2016 (after 2:00PM). All orders must be picked up at the temple by 6:30PM
