This program rediscovers the charms of Japan based on the personal interests of ambassadors to Japan. In the first episode, Myanmar Ambassador Myint Thu, who first stayed in Japan as 3rd secretary 20 years ago, visits Kitakyushu, his second home in Japan. He introduces Japan's only Myanmar-style pagoda and enjoys local food specialties. He also finds a low-cost water purification system he wants to introduce to Myanmar where people start to pay attention to environmental pollution amid economic development, and demonstrates his karate skills.
