Joanna Lumley's Japan

Joanna Lumley's Japan

Japan takes centre stage tonight with the start of a three part documentary series that sees Joanna Lumley embarking on an epic 2,000 mile journey round the country. She will be exploring the unique culture, sampling the cuisine and learning about Japan’s fascinating history as she tries to get under the skin of this compelling and intriguing land.

Joanna’s journey takes her from high-tech, high-rise cities to remote islands and ancient mountain trails, on the way she discovers wonderfully varied landscapes, unexpected delights and a world of cultural contrasts. As she says herself: “Every moment was thrilling, fascinating and often very moving. With my hand on my heart I can say: please come with me… to Japan!”

If Joanna’s travels round Japan make you want to visit, then take a look at our two NEW trekking holidays in Japan. Staying in traditional accommodation, our Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trek follows sacred paths through beautiful high mountain scenery, whilst our immersive Gentle Trekking Japan trip explores ancient trails and historic post-towns including the Nakasendo Trail – named by Joanna Lumley in her top 5 things to do in Japan.

Joanna Lumley's Japan starts Friday 9th September at 9:00pm on ITV.

Helen enthralled a sell-out audience with stories, anecdotes and fascinating details of the time she spent training and aboard the Russian space station back in 1991.
