Seeking to understand what makes up Japan and why national pride is a particularly complex issue for people here, Royce takes a look at both the ideals and realities of Japan today, touching on various cultural phenomena and recent events such as anime, robots, J-pop, football, preserving harmony, apologizing profusely, hidden poverty, death from overwork and more… This is Japan.
