    And for those of you asking, the device he uses to poke holes in the eggs is called an egg piercer. I couldn't find the exact one he's using, but here's one on Amazon amzn.to/2Ei3iZ5. Here's what it does en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_piercer.

    I feel kinda sorry for people like him, he does absolutely amazing work but has no time for personal stuff like raising a family.
    The Japanese want to score a 100% perfection and that is admirable, but it destroys personal life.

      Chefs don't wear gloves. Don't compare with American fast-"foodlike" eateries which is just for show. This cook doesn't spit on your food like your gloved fast food prepper.

    It is not farfetch, I went to a ramen place in Unoki where this dude runs his own place. Re-opens at 5pm and does everything himself, when not bust. He washes the dishes, check/refill stock and many more. It was my last dinner before leaving Tokyo, feelsbadman. These guys work over 80 hours a fortnight while I do 38 due to laws in my country.

    Used to own a restaurant, it is the hardest job, long hour, no holidays, you work when people r not working (Christmas, new year...) Yes, and have to pleased everyone, earned about $5 a person after all the food cost, labor.... If u r thinking about it, don't do it. There is a joke about it "can u be a millionaire owning a restaurant? " the answer is "yes, if u start out as a billionaire "

    So amazing! Loved his passion for his work and the way he smiles when he talks about it. I think the reason he still looks happy even if his work hours eats majority of his time is because he is doing what he loves. It was never a question of how long his work hours, it was more of how much he loves his work. I hope to find that work with the same passion as he shows. 😊
