While doing a late night skim over the #sofubi tag on instagram I came across this video... Pretty sure this is from a Chinese factory. Japanese sofubi seems to 'slip' out of the mold (regardless of the shape) - whereas this looks like it's clammy/catching as it's being pulled out. Watch with the volume on to have more of an effect.. it just doesn't resemble any real sofubi workshop video I've ever seen. Maybe might be of an interest of production heads like @Omnihiro Thought it's worthwhile posting here as generally footage from Chinese factories is pretty hard to come by - and considering the whole boom in Asian production over recent years. Chick on the image to be taken to Instagram to watch the video through their interface.
