Among its more than 100 types of edible mushrooms, Japan's matsutake is said to be the king, particularly in autumn. One of these mushrooms, which grow only in the wild, can go for up to 100 dollars. On this episode, we visit the mountains where matsutake grows and discover how the fragrant mushrooms, beloved in Japan since ancient times, are used in a variety of Japanese and Western dishes.
