The Borderless Jewel in the Crown of Fukushima’s Summer.

Peaches represent the deliciousness of summer in Fukushima.
Peach farmers in Fukushima have managed to overcome the earthquake and nuclear accident, and strived to create a future for themselves. For example, Fukushima peaches, grown with the ultimate care, achieved record sales in 2016 centered on Southeast Asia, even surpassing quantities exported before the earthquake, for which they have been attracting attention from throughout the world. What have the dreams of the farmers been since the earthquake, embodied in these peaches?
Overseas students also experience Fukushima peach picking for the first time. They thoroughly enjoy themselves. So, how do the students from Vietnam, China, Brazil and Malaysia come to feel about the peaches of Fukushima?
This program also focuses on gourmet food in Fukushima made from these peaches!
