Japan is a country that is steeped in history and culture and among the high tech skyscrapers and the neon lit shopping areas are remnants of a glorious past.

On this episode Anthony talks to Juju Kurihara from Iromegane about the Shichigosan Festival, which translates into English as 7-5-3, this festival celebrates the coming of age of young children.

We also take a walk through the majestic Imperial Palace located in the heart of Tokyo with Paul Christie from Walk Japan. Paul leads us on a fascinating walking tour of the historical significance of the Imperial Palace and the role it played in establishing Tokyo as the economic centre of Japan.
