Reporter Chris takes us to Shizuoka Prefecture in response to a viewer request about Ieyasu, who established the Tokugawa shogunate. Ieyasu spent his final years here and left his legacy in the city. Chris visits Kunozan Toshogu where Ieyasu is revered and other related places. He also goes to a storehouse to try aged green tea, a favorite of Ieyasu's, and visits a workshop producing lacquered geta. Also, we introduce popular New Year fare, and give tips on how to enjoy mochi rice cakes in your hotel room.
