The surface of the glass kagami mochi is slightly rough, but it feels smooth, just like the real mochi.

It is said that it is created using the state of the glass before it is completely melted, and the fine bubbles express the surface of the rice cake very realistically. In addition, the unevenness of the dimples of orange is also given cutely, and it is carefully finished by hand.
