Created: 22 September 2016

Enticingly delivered to the nation’s living rooms this autumn by one of the UK’s favourite presenters, ITV’s ‘Joanna Lumley’s Japan’ travels to some of this multi-faceted country’s most intriguing spots, inevitably prompting travellers to plan their own journey to The Land of the Rising Sun during 2017.
