Broadcast on April 26, 2021 Available until April 26, 2022

On this episode, we travel to Urakawa Town in Hokkaido Prefecture where Nguyen Van Bao and Nguyen Van Hieu, 2 veterinarians from Vietnam, work as grooms at a racehorse breeding farm. Not accustomed to taking care of horses at first, they're now in charge of 20 animals each. We follow them as they tackle the busiest time of the year for horse breeders: spring, when mothers give birth. We also meet French-born Jeremy Escudero, who sells kitchen knives at a Tokyo store with more than a hundred years of history.
