Hear the podcast: Something To Declare Japanese special
Friday 24 September 2010
What’s the secret of finding the freshest seafood in Tokyo? How can you explore Japan for a song at 186mph? And where can you go island-hopping by bike?
These are just three of the questions answered in the latest edition of The Independent’s radio series, Something to Declare, produced in association with the Japanese National Tourism Organization and Virgin Atlantic Airways.
The whole programme is devoted to Japan, a much-misunderstood nation that is, as Simon Calder discovers, one of the safest places on earth. Join him as he meets travellers and travel experts in Britain and Japan, for up-to-the-minute advice on making the most of this remarkable country.
