Photo Journal: Sweet treat for the heat


Children carefully fill cups with grape juice from a faucet at Yamanashi Fuefukigawa Fruit Park in the city of Yamanashi, on Sept. 3, 2017. A local company annually holds the "local faucet" event to highlight Yamanashi Prefecture's delicious fruit. This year, 200 liters of grape juice, roughly enough for 600 people, was prepared for the event. After waiting in line in the residual summer heat, participants enjoyed cool fresh juice from the faucets. "I wish juice came out of the faucet at home too," wished 9-year-old Yuki Kasai, a fourth year elementary school student from Fuefuki, Yamanashi Prefecture, perhaps echoing the wishes of many children that day for one faucet per household.
