Back home I used to watch a sweet documentary program on NHK World called “Gentle Journeys,” dubbed in English Gentle Journeys chronicled small stories about just ordinary people in Japan. Well guess what NHK in Japan is airing at 11:00am right now? And its appearing with the original Japanese titles and narration intact. It’s interesting to compare the two versions and also seeing what the program looks like in full HD, just lovely.
The cinematography and editing of this program are lovely, a simple documentary style but crafted with loving care.
Today’s Gentle Journeys is about piano makers, tuners and repair people…
