Kagami mochi (鏡餅, Kagami mochi?), literally mirror rice cake, is a traditional Japanese New Year decoration. It usually consists of two round mochi (rice cakes), the smaller placed atop the larger, and a daidai (a Japanese bitter orange) with an attached leaf on top. In addition, it may have a sheet of konbu and a skewer of dried persimmons under the mochi. It sits on a stand called a sanpō (三宝, sanpō?) over a sheet called a shihōbeni (四方紅, shihōbeni?), which is supposed to ward off fires from the house for the following years. Sheets of paper called gohei (御幣, gohei?) folded into lightning shapes similar to those seen on sumo wrestler's belts are also attached.
