One of the most homogenous societies, Japan also has some of the most varied landscapes. Due to volcanic terrain, its people tend to be crowded into megalopolises. A rich rural life and Buddhist influences all contribute to Japan's culture.
Considering the video is only half hour long, it shared a decent amount info on many aspects of Japan & Japanese culture. Not enough time for much detail on all the topics, but I feel moderately informed on the major points of Japan including religion, food, cities, economy, history, social culture. Interesting current video footage and the narrator wasn't too boring. There were no reviews, so I thought I'd contribute :) We're traveling to visit Japan in a few months and thought I'd educate myself ahead of time like a good tourist. This video makes me want to find other more in-depth videos. But I'd recommend it for someone who falls between not knowing anything about Japan to someone who is already marginally knowledgeable on the country of Japan. 4 stars because I'm inclined to search for other videos by this company New Dimension.
