I purchased the discs so I could loan them to friends. My wife is Japanese and was very surprised to see the characters on the box were not Japanese, they are Chinese!. I suspect this set was made for the Chinese market. .I just do not have time to watch it again.
I will, however, comment that the version NHK broadcast showed Japanese subtitles when English was being spoken and English when Japanese was spoken. It is a wonderful story, .in the style of a Michener novel. All Americans should watch it to see how unfairly America treated Japanese Americans, putting into concentration camps US citizens, many never having been in Japan and did not speak Japanese.. Since this is a Japanese production it is a chance to overcome the old saying, "After a war, the winners get to write the history books".

Great Japanese movie. The captions are off about 25% of the time. If you can understand Japanese then you won't need the captions. Quality of the move is extremely good. Read morePublished 8 months ago by Ryan Yamato

The series itself is really good and is shockingly close to my family's history. My only complaint is that the english subtitles are kinda funky. Read morePublished 18 months ago by Mark Homma
This is an excellent movie, however, the English translation was so poorly done that much of the subtitles did not make any sense.
The DVD was therefore a huge disappointment. Read more
The story of Japanese immigrants hardships in America is great. However, if you need to use the english subtitles then prepare to be confused. Read morePublished on April 22, 2014 by Robin F Heath
The translation came out poorly. It was very disappointing! Couldn't they find a better translator? The story line is interesting so
it made the Dvd a letdown.
