From the winners of the Peabody Awards and many other honors for their minimalist expression of images and music, comes a brand new show --JAPANGLE-- which introduces the beauty of Japan. It is targeted at children worldwide and presented from the perspective of two puppet characters, a professor and his assistant, from an unknown country who are studying Japan. Each episode looks at a common topic, such as public restrooms, manga, and sushi, presenting them from four angles -- design, history, technique, and spirit. Children learn the methodology for gaining insight about things and their environment by deconstructing them in multiple and varied ways. Discover fresh perspectives on Japan, a land of wonders.
