Storyline

James May has always been intrigued and seduced by the idea of Japan, yet this nation and its culture remains a complete mystery to him. Now he's on a one-man mission to immerse himself in its society, places, and people in a bid to unlock its extraordinary secrets. By taking on an epic journey across all of Japan from north to south, James is determined to gain a genuine understanding into why this unique land and its people are the way they are, what drives their whole culture, and what their approach to life can teach the rest of us. So far so good, but it won't be easy. He can't speak the language, he's clueless about Japanese etiquette but at least he knows there's a small tree called a banzai... Not only that, but Japan is one of the most contradictory and confusing places on earth. Here, classical art forms and haiku poetry rub shoulders with Godzilla, Cosplay, and some of the strangest obsessions on the planet, while stunning, peaceful vistas of gently falling cherry blossom ...

As James May as it gets
3 January 2020 | by ilcool90See all my reviews

Such a fun new mini series by the one and only James May. Very informative as well just with a lot of James May souse which I love.

Amazon really struck gold by getting Jeremy, Richard ( who will also have their own shows ) and James on board. They are the only reason I subscribed.
