Aired: Jun. 25, 2021

Osemachi, a picturesque rural community in northeast Japan, is home to many people who work in agriculture. From out-of-work samurai in the 19th century to those wishing to distance themselves from city life, this town has a tradition of welcoming outsiders. In conversations with local people, Adam Fulford finds out how that tradition lives on in the present day.
