Salt isn't just an ingredient in Japan, it's used for purification rituals in sumo and at temples and shrines. It all started with an ancient sea salt extraction process. On the northern shores of the Noto Peninsula, registered as a globally important agricultural heritage system, grab your buckets and get to work collecting sea water! Also feast your eyes on seasonings, preserved foods, flavored salts, and more savory delights unique to Japan. (Reporter: Michael Keida)
