A funny clip from Nara, Japan where mochi (Japanese rice cake) making masters perform high speed dough pounding. If you travel to Japan and head to Nara's old temples and parks, don't forget to watch it live and taste the "yomogi-mochi" (more info below...)

奈良の高速餅つきチャンピオンの中谷堂の様子です。

奈良市、興福寺の付近に、中谷堂というよもぎ餅の専門店があります。餅だけでなく、毎日餅つきのドラマチックパフォーマンスも提供しています。高速餅つきの大会によく出てくるお店さんたちは超高速餅つきを行います。

Mochi is traditional Japanese confectionery made from glutinous rice. It requires quite laborious process to produce smooth mass.

Nakatanido is a cake shop in Nara offering not only pastry, but also a performance when preparing it.

The green color comes from "yomogi" grass and pastry is served with "anko" sweet bean paste inserted by a machine.

You can visit the shop online at http://www.nakatanidou.jp/ One piece of mochi costs 130 yen and you can buy it almost immediately as it was prepared.
