Joanna Lumleys Japan S01E02 HDTV x264-JIVESep 17
Season 1, Episode 2
The second of three programmes in which Joanna Lumley explores the country and culture of Japan. Joanna starts her journey this time round by flying over the city of Tokyo in a helicopter. The city was bombed extensively during the Second World War, so almost all of Tokyo has been rebuilt over the last 70 years – a symbol of Japan’s post-war economic boom that saw it become the world’s second largest economy. Later, Joanna meets fashion designer and internationally-known artist Minori, who wears Shinori make up, meaning her face is white and reminiscent of the traditional geisha look.
