NHK WORLD-JAPAN Lunch ON!
Tottori Prefecture Special
Tottori is a prefecture that is famous for its sand dunes, but we cannot ignore the fact that there’s also a lot of deliciousness going on in this wonderful prefecture. So, we dedicate this entire episode to highlight the yummy lunches of Tottori. We start off with the game meat curry at the prefectural government office cafeteria. And then, we visit a fountain pen workshop to check out a one-of-a-kind rice ball. To finish off, we report on the lunching situation of the prefectural police band!

“Kintsugi” is a pottery restoration technique that uses urushi to adhere and decorate with gold powder.
“Kintsugi”, which is a technique that is precisely because there is a feeling that “it is a waste to throw it away, I want to do something about it”, has been restored to be even more beautiful than the original, and is the “missing beauty” of Japanese “wabi-sabi”. It is a culture that admires
We regard “Kintsugi” as an art, and we propose that you can consider even a precious wood that is not damaged as an option along with urushi coating.
