Joanna Lumley’s Japan

Joanna Lumley’s Japan  – 3 part series starts on ITV tonight at 9pm

Silky of voice and enthusiastic of spirit, Joanna Lumley is the perfect tour guide as she travels 2,000 miles across Japan. This week, she’s in the northern island of Hokkaido before heading to Sapporo, where the annual snow festival is in full swing. She charms the locals, talks to monkeys and hugs an ice sculpture. However, one of the most poignant moments comes when she meets a man who stayed in Fukushima, the site of the devastated nuclear power plant, to look after pets.
