Mochi Pounding Experience

Pound Your Own Mochi!

Mochi is a sticky rice cake made by steaming glutinous rice called "Mochigome". Then you need to pound the Mochigome while it's hot in order to make Mochi.

In Japan, Mochi Pounding Celebrations are held for special celebrations such as New Year's.
Mochi are usually made by machines nowadays, but in order to taste the real texture and flavour of fresh mochi, you need to pound the Mochigome using kine (pestle) and usu (mortar) .  Try your hand in Mochi Pounding. 
It will be one of the cultural experiences you'll never forget.
