Henry makes a comeback through this brand new journey to conquer the Land of the Rising Sun. He kicks off his great adventure in Hokkaido, the second largest and least developed of Japan’s four main islands with a Japanese local. They also explore the popular zoological garden, Asahiyama Zoo, learns of rare moss balls, and goes canoeing at the Shiretoko Lake. From indulging in the beauty of the Biei Hills, to facing staggering cold temperatures at the Ice Pavilion, to experiencing wetlands ecosystems at the Kushiro-shitsugen National Park, he spends his first days in Japan with the unspoiled nature of Hokkaido.

Originally released in 2015, this is the first time that all the episodes are available for viewers on one streaming site!

Considering most of us likely didn’t get to watch the original, nor are we traveling anytime soon this is the perfect weekend watch alone or with family. Episodes are under 30 minutes full of interesting and well presented content for any travel TV show fan.

JOURNY is available on most devices and at Ovation TV.
