Episode Details

Northern Japanese rice farmers combat harsh and unpredictable weather patterns by closely monitoring their crops and making frequent adjustments—and by using advanced weather-forecasting technology. In Tokyo, one of the most densely populated urban areas in the world, a businessman's morning commute from the quiet suburbs to the city illustrates the region's elaborate and efficient infrastructure of commuter and subway trains.
