Eating sweet, refreshing watermelon is a popular way to combat the summer heat. In Japan, seasonal festivities wouldn't be quite the same without it. Appropriately named, watermelon consists of 90% water and is filled with nutrients that protect the body against heat fatigue. Visit a top production area where farmers are hard at work making the largest, sweetest watermelons possible.
