This amazing budget machiya actually hosts mochi making but I don't know how often https://kyoto-okara.com/en/index.php
I recommend the private room downstairs.

I am living at the place where the workshop is made.
This place is real place where they are keeping the old lifestyle.

Hi!
I'm Japanese living in Tokyo.

If you are used to climbing a mountain and can gather some people, It is worth looking into this proposal.
(It's not workshop, but the staff should show you how to do Mochitsuki.)

The mountain hut of Mt.Kagenobu(iMR elevation: 727m), which is in the west of Tokyo, accepts the experience of Mochitsuki.

Take the Chuo line or Keio Line at Shinjuku and getting off the train at Takao() station(Not Takaosanguchi(R)).
And take a local buss toward Kobotoke() (terminal buss stop).
It takes about 1hour on the foot(mountain climbing) to get to the summit of Mt.Kagenobu from Kobotoke buss stop.
The hut "Aoki(–)" is there.

They accept the reservation of Mochitsuki by 1P("usu")(about for 12person).
However, the reservation site say that "Please consult us if there are few people".

Here are URL of the hut and another.
