On this episode, we head to Mitoyo in Kagawa Prefecture to meet French-native Jerome Rupp who grows Shine Muscats, a variety of high-end grapes born in Japan. Cultivating the luxury fruit is painstaking work that requires meticulous care. After training under a mentor, Jerome finally harvested his first grapes last year. However, some of them had been damaged by a typhoon. How will the fruit of his labor fare this season? Later on, Danish Jonas Berg introduces his work as a pipe organ builder in Tokyo.
