Looks like:

(1) remove eyes, and with knife, slit potato skin around the middle before
boiling
(2) plunge boiled potato in ice water (they use a ladle, but a slotted spoon
would probably transfer less hot water into the ice water)
(3) after sitting ??? time in ice water (don't speak Japanese... 30
seconds?) take it out and pull skin off both ends.

Judging by the way the young lady is counting [reminds me of the old 
joke about the Irish contraceptive] I'd say it was 10 seconds in ice 
water.  (There's a '10' hidden in the subtitle about that time too.)

But, who boils whole potatoes?  Takes forever and unless using waxy
potato, the outside will be mush by time the inside is cooked.  I make
mashed potatoes by cutting into 1" to 1-1/2" cubes and boiling.  Cooks
in about ten minutes.

I've always cooked potatoes, no matter what the size or type, or cut,  for 
20 minutes.
But, perhaps Japanese like to 'present' a whole potato on a plate more than 
we do.  Maybe they think the potatoes in a can are cute and are trying to 
duplicate them.
Who knows.
