Photo Journal: Radical radish

Children at Daiho Kindergarten enjoy inspecting a Sakurajima radish, which is bigger than their faces, in the city of Tsuruoka, Yamagata Prefecture, on Jan. 22, 2018. The radish, a specialty of Kagoshima Prefecture, is approximately 70 centimeters long and 10.6 kilograms in weight. Tsuruoka and the city of Kagoshima share a sister-city relationship. The radish was sent from a kindergarten in Kagoshima in return for 16 kilograms of snow that Daiho Kindergarten sent to the Kyushu preschool at the end of last year. (Mainichi)
