really love this show!
it covers just about everything that is Japan and does one subject per episode in GREAT lengths.
its a great mix of history, culture and the way of living in Japan.
anyone that love Japan and all its weird things will enjoy this long series IMO.
this series is one of the closest things you can get to Japan without actually going there.
Great show for all things japan, be sure to check out Japanology Plus which is the follow on series to Begin Japanology
