Life Konnichiwa, Moon!

Tonight is the full moon. Lovely.
My Japanese friend Madoka assures me that in, well, Japan, they fail to see the jaunty, grinning Man in the Moon, as we relatively roundy-eyed freaks seem to do here in the so-called West. On that mysterious island where raw fish rules and businessmen sleep in sock drawers, they instead insist on seeing “Two Crows Making Rice Cake”. I know! Two Crows Making Rice Cake!
I don’t get it.
This probably has everything to do with the fact that my occidental imagination completely fails to grasp any remotely accurate idea of what the hell two crows making a rice cake would look like, or why two crows would choose to make a rice cake in the first place (crows diet?) and therefore I have absolutely zero idea what the hell she’s talking about. Maybe you can figure it out?
Look up, dammit! Look up!
