Summary Japan's society is changing"”increasing numbers of foreigners want to live and work in this country, which has a strong monoculture. Therefore tolerance of other nationalities has become an important issue, and in order to foster international understanding, third grade primary teacher Shigeto Honda has developed an unusual package of lessons in which his students learn about different cultures, specifically their cuisine. Shigeto thinks that 'International Understanding' is a very difficult subject to comprehend from a text book. His motto is to let the children experience things for themselves. Through first hand knowledge the students explore the cuisines of their Asian neighbours. This includes a class discussion with two Sri Lankan exchange students and the delicious task of eating curry and Indian rice with their hands. A co-production between NHK Japan, KBS Korea, TVO La Chaine Canada, WTTW Chicago,YLE Finland, Channel 2 Polish Television and Film Australia.
