NHK Cycle Around Japan – Ibaraki: Where Family Matters (2020)

NHK Cycle Around Japan 2020 Ibaraki Where Family Matters

This 400km winter cycle trip takes us through Ibaraki Prefecture. At Lake Kasumigaura, our cyclist plunges into freezing water to help a husband and wife harvest lotus roots. After hill climbing on Mt. Tsukuba, he visits a historic kendo hall and a workshop where 2 brothers make fine armor the traditional way. Whether it’s an old couple crafting heirloom brooms, or hotel brothers experimenting with fishermen’s cuisine, Ibaraki families know the value of working together.
