BBC Radio 4: Off the Page - Japan (available until Monday 5th December 2011)
Japan: Hiroko Kawanami, Richard Lloyd Parry and Imran Yusuf explore the idea of Japan. What is it really like, and how does it match up to people's preconceptions?
Hiroko Kawanami is a Japanese lecturer in Buddhism who prefers living in the UK. Richard Lloyd Parry is Asia Editor of The Times and has lived in Tokyo for sixteen years. British stand-up comedian Imran Yusuf has visited Japan and loved it.
All three write and talk about the Japan they know, with presenter Dominic Arkwright - who has never been to Japan and freely admits he knows little about it..
The place, the language, the culture
