On this episode, we meet US-born Tim Jones in the town of Kuromatsunai in Hokkaido Prefecture. A veteran cattle farmer from Texas, Tim was 68 when two years ago, he and his Japanese wife decided to move to her home country to raise cows. In Japan where marbled fatty beef is the gold standard, will Tim be able to sell his leaner grass-fed meat? Join us to find out. We also visit a construction site in Osaka Prefecture where Vietnamese Tran Ngoc Son works as a carpenter under the Technical Intern Trainee program.
