Theres no shortage of fascinating people to meet, delicious food to eat and traditions to explore in Japan. This reel starts with a story about a composer famous for his melodic Tokyo train tracks. In Nara, we watch the countrys fastest mochi maker pound dough like a prize fighter. Next, we learn why people trek to remote Rishiri Island to eat at a family-run ramen shop thats only open two and a half hours a day. Over in Karatsu, we indulge in the sweet, sweet taste of pricey white strawberries. Our awesome trip ends in Tokushima, where we see how the indigo-dyed cloth once worn by samurai is still made to this day.
