Mochi question.. Please help!?

Hi.. So I've ate daifuku and mochi (don't exactly know the difference between the two) and I love them.. Now I don't live in Japan so I can't buy them.. I want to make them and I know you have to buy glutinous rice flour, but I've searched everywhere and can't find it.. So can I use rice... show more Hi.. So I've ate daifuku and mochi (don't exactly know the difference between the two) and I love them.. Now I don't live in Japan so I can't buy them.. I want to make them and I know you have to buy glutinous rice flour, but I've searched everywhere and can't find it.. So can I use rice flour instead or is not the same?

If not, sushi rice is available.. can I just grind that up to make glutinous flour or not?

Please help me..

Thanks!
