At One with the Soil - Iga City, Mie Prefecture -

Venetia travels to the Iga region of Mie Prefecture. A friend here has worked long and hard to prepare the soil to plant herbs, and Venetia visits the herb garden where the sage is in full bloom. She also meets a potter, Yoshitaka Hasu, for the first time in 30 years. Hasu fires his earthenware after spending months and years to mature the Iga clay. His distinctive products are designed for serving food and Venetia savors his creations together with his home cooking. The kind hospitality of her old friends fills her with a sense of well-being.
