Japan's agriculture exports hit fresh record in 2016

Sweet grapes, strawberries appeal to taste buds of the wealthy

High-grade Japanese grapes fetch high prices in major Asian cities.

TOKYO -- Japan's exports of agricultural, forestry and fishery products increased for a fourth straight year in 2016, underpinned by rising demand for high-quality fruit and beef.

These exports grew 1% from 2015 to around 750 billion yen ($6.68 billion), according to government sources, even as Japan's total exports fell 7% last year as a result of the strong yen.
