Broadcast on November 7, 2022 Available until November 7, 2023

A ride under the summer sun to Fukui Prefecture. Close to Kyoto Prefecture, Fukui supplied the old capital with both food and manufactured goods via the Saba-kaido, the "Mackerel Road." On Fukui's fertile coast, we stay with a fishing family, riding out before dawn on their boat to catch our breakfast. In Echizen, center of traditional crafts, we meet a master knifemaker, famous worldwide for his blades, and in Fukui City we ride with a high school cycling team, filled with a youthful determination to succeed.
