This is Dean's uncle, Fumiyuki, cutting the soba noodles. I should've gotten a video of the whole thing, but it took about 30 minutes to do all the mixing of the dough, then the very careful rolling of it using 4 different rollers (think thick long dowels), then folding it to get this thick piece of dough. Very precise.
And here's the coolest thing ever - the Nozomi bullet train that goes up to 190 mph. The video doesn't do justice to the rush you get when it comes through the station.
