Where We Call Home

This time, we meet American Thomas Kloepfer, a farmer living in Onomichi, Hiroshima Prefecture, where he revived abandoned farmland to grow all sorts of vegetables. His new project is a café that will feature his produce and bring the local community together. But this year's scorching summer has been hard on his crops. We follow Thomas in his efforts to overcome this obstacle and keep his dream alive. We also visit a brewery in Yamanashi Prefecture, where Richard Leglise, also from the US, crafts barrel-aged beer.
