On Design Hunts Andy and Shaula search for designs rooted in regional history and climates. This time they visit Saitama Prefecture whose natural surroundings are enhanced by rich earth and a wealth of rivers. Gardening, bonsai and other green industries flourish here, with beautiful planting on view in every town. This unique landscape has led to industrial designs that use fallen leaves in a sustainable cycle. Join us on a hunt next-door to Tokyo as we explore designs and aesthetics that perfectly balance the need to co-exist with the natural world.
