From youthful Buddhists to graceful Geisha, the people of Japan strive to balance modernity and technology with tradition. We join to Geishas to learn of the people behind the perfect facade, a rare and fascinating glimpse into a mystical world, few women can handle the training resume, the years of toil that go into effortless beauty. In the mountains of Koya religion is everywhere, from monks to ancient statues. In Okinawa fresh vegetables in the diet seem to over a key to long-life, the oldest inhabitant was still working in the fields at 102 and continues to thrive two years on. We finish with a robot, the first humanoid ready to go into production - it'll wake you in the mornings, even go through your work out with you - this is a glimpse of the future.
