But at the same time, the construction industry is grappling with a severe shortage of workers, with the younger generation increasingly turning away from this line of work.

Industrial Heritage is a program that explores the knowledge, technology, and craftsmanship of people who’ve laid the foundations of the Japanese economy since the 1800s.
