Dessert Sweets & Drink Festival
You might have heard that the Japanese have a delicate palate. But that doesn't mean they don't like sweets, as you'll see in our "On Site" segment. Tomoko Hayakawa will give you a tour of the sweetest exhibition in Japan, the Dessert Sweets & Drink Festival. Put your diet plans on hold and get ready for some very tasty treats!
Follow a Map Through Time
If you want to take your Tokyo sightseeing to another level, then there's an app just for you. It contains old maps of the metropolis and has already become quite a hit. Our "Intersections" segment features this impressive piece of programming that is just about the closest thing to a time machine that you can get on your smart phone.
Keeping Woodblock Printing Alive
Before the era of instant access to information, the best way to keep up with the latest trends in pop culture in 19th century Japan were the woodblock prints known as ukiyo-e. And believe it or not, there's a shop still making them that's been around from the beginning. We'll take you there on this artistic edition of our "Special Report."
