Watch a B-2 bomber refuel and then make its fuel receptacle disappear

Damn, that thing really is stealth. This video shows how the B-2 stealth bomber refuels and rotates its fuel receptacle so that it can maintain its stealth. You see the receptacle in clear view when it's ready for fuel but after it's all filled up, it's gone and the whole plane is back to being undetected.

Must be so awesome to fly a stealth bomber, I mean, even getting gas is cool.

So how much of that tech is American, and how much is Japanese? I heard at first that only the stealth paint was partly made by Japanese collaboration. Now I'm hearing that some of the plane itself was also made with Japanese collaboration. Anyone can shed light?
