Synopsis by Alice Day
Full Circle With Michael Palin: Japan and Korea finds host Michael Palin meeting the Kodo Drumers on an island near the Japanese coast. A ten-course meal awaits him at a traditional inn, where he tries the raw squid and abalone. Next, he eats loaches, which are small fish soaked in sake, and ventures a bet on the horses. He heads for a Buddhist temple via bullet train to meditate, attends a festival in Nagasaki, and goes to Juis Ten Bosch, a Dutch village complete with all the trappings of Holland within Japan. He experiences a riot in Seoul, South Korea; is a guest at a wedding; and gets a view of the demilitarized zone.
