See why making Japanese mochi treats is an artform

Throughout the afternoon, experts will be demonstrating the traditional way of making the dessert called mochi, which is done by pounding sticky rice with a wooden mallet in a hollow tree trunk. Taste samples after each performance and even try your hand at it.
