Absolutely fascinating and a joy to watch
14 March 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a weekly documentary which covers a different topic about Japans culture and history each week. Presented and narrated by Peter Barakan, every episode is full of information and delves deep into every nook and cranny (or as much as it can do in 30 minutes) of the subject matter. Not only is it informative but it is also very engaging and I found myself drinking less cups of tea because I would rather wait until it had finished than pause it. It is one of the best documentary series I have seen in a long time, so if you have any interest in Japan and its culture then you owe it to yourself to check it out. 10/10
