Making Videos, Making Friends
Miyagi Meets Palau

In 2020, the Olympics come to Tokyo! Japanese kids will play a part in making guests feel welcome by creating videos to foster international friendships.
This time, we go to Zao in Miyagi, which will host the Olympians from Palau. Why would a snowy mountain town host tropical Pacific Islanders? To find the answer, Zao's kids explore a part of town whose name hints at the complex legacy of war. Kids from Palau watch the video they made and gain a deeper understanding of the Japanese people.
