This time we head to mountainous Nagano Prefecture where 13-year-old Artem Tsymbaliuk fled from the war in his homeland of Ukraine with his mother. Practicing Zendokai Karate since childhood, Artem was invited to Japan by the founder of this unique martial art style. Two months after his arrival, Artem takes part in a prefectural tournament. How will he fare? Join us to find out! We also visit Osaka Prefecture to follow Malaysian Yip Xue Qian in his marketing work for a world-renowned manufacturer of snack foods.
