The aging of the population and labor shortages are some of the biggest issues Japanese agriculture is currently facing. On this episode, we meet Tamir Blum, a young Israeli man who's working to lighten the workload of Japanese farmers ... with robots! From his company office in Chiba Prefecture, he and his team are developing a robot that he hopes will help farmers nationwide with physically-demanding tasks. Later on, we drop by an event in Tokyo to watch UK-born street performer Chris Peters in action.
