Mochi tsuki is performed by 2 people.

One person pounds the mochi with wooden ハンマー called Kine and the other person shifts the sticky rice and keeps it from getting too sticky.

After pounding for 10-15min the sticky rice will turn soft like marshmallow...

Mochitsuki is complete!. It is very simple.
