Broadcasters' Eye showcases excellent programs produced by Japanese commercial broadcasters.
This program documents 5 years at a bathhouse in Nagano Prefecture, Japan, that has long provided emotional comfort for local residents. In a time when bathhouses are quickly vanishing from Japan, this program shows the important role the public bathhouse serves as a place where the people of a community can gather, communicate, care for each other, and share laughter.
