Abstract:

Volume 1 is an overview of the traditions and cultural aspects of Japan, exploring Japanese values and motivations. It also presents the facts of the 1945 atomic bombing of Hiroshima factually and graphically, with intercuts of contemporary reminders of the effects of the bombing.

Volume 2 illustrates the natural beauty of Japan and its natural resources. It illustrates Japanese attitudes towards the ocean and how the ocean is often a central theme in art, literature, song, and worship.

Volume 3 relates a famous and tragic story to illustrate the strict code of honor and duty between and samurai warrior and his lord. Discusses Makato: the concept that sincerity is often more important than the success of an effort. Makato is a vital part of Bushido.

Volume 4 discusses the beginnings of Buddhism and how it came to Japan. Examines Shinto, the indigenous Japanese religion, and explores the use of shrines for worship and examines some of the fundamental values and teachings of Shinto.

Volume 5 explores Chado (tea ceremony), Ikebana (flower arranging), garden design, food preparation, and martial arts. Highlights many social and cultural aspects that are unique to Japan, and discusses stereotypes of the Japanese. Tours some of the national treasures of Japan, such as Mount Fuji and the Tancho cranes.
