Today we focus on the most cultivated fruit in Japan, the mikan -- a palm-sized citrus fruit that is so soft and easy-to-eat, you could eat an entire batch. In the autumn and winter seasons, a plentiful amount of mikan can be found in nearly every Japanese home. Learn more by visiting an orchard in Wakayama Prefecture, where mikan trees are seen lined up on steep hills.
