Mochi is a Japanese rice cake made of a sweet sticky rice called mochigome. The rice is pounded very fast for 2 minutes to create a paste and can be molded into its desired shape. The traditional way of mochi pounding consists of one person pounding while the other mixes by hand.   Mochi is soft, smooth, and chewy, and it is part of a traditional japanese culture. “I live my life for mochi pounding.” says Mitsuo Nakataniduo. Mitsuo has been running Nakatanidou for 23 years. His average pounding is about 3 poundings per second.
