Rhys Darby is a willing participant and student as he discovers the paradox that is Japan.
The 2020 Olympics were scheduled to take place in Tokyo before a global pandemic led to their postponement. However, the eyes of the world had already started to turn to all things Japanese... and so did renowned actor and comedian Rhys Darby. Rhys has explored many countries, but not Japan. In this four part travelogue, Rhys is an innocent abroad as he travels through Japan for the very first time. It’s sensory overload as he discovers a country thought to be the most unique in the world.
Rhys is on a mission to find out how Japan, as one of the most technologically advanced societies in the world - at the forefront of AI & IoT, has remained culturally strong and distinctive as the rest of the world becomes increasingly homogenised.
Over four jam-packed episodes, Rhys is a willing participant and student as he discovers the paradox that is Japan.
