Joanna Lumleys Japan S01E03 HDTV x264-JIVESep 24
Season 1, Episode 3
Last of three programmes in which Joanna Lumley explores the country and culture of Japan. Joanna travels to the island of Shikoku to undertake a pilgrimage, visiting a selection of temples to gain a better understanding of Japanese Buddhism. She then takes a bullet train to Kyushu where she finds the world’s first robot hotel. Then it is on to Nagasaki – the site of the second atomic bomb to be dropped on Japan in 1945. She visits Shiroyama Elementary school, which was the school closest to the bomb’s hyper centre, and one of the only buildings to survive. Joanna meets Matsuyoshi Ikeda – a student of the school on the day the bomb dropped, who shares his miraculous story of survival. Joanna then travels south to Kagoshima, home to one of Japan’s most active volcanoes, Sakurajima, and takes to the skies to get as close as possible to the crater. Her final destination is Okinawa, where one of the bloodiest battles of WWII was fought between Japanese and American troops.
