Journeys in Japan

Season 3, Episode 10 of 52

Yubari, in the center of Hokkaido, is famous for its international film festival, which is held each winter, and for its picturesque scenery. But for half a century, it was best known as a thriving coal mining community. Now little remains of that era except memories and atmospheric ruins. On this edition of Journeys In Japan, American actor Charles Glover explores the relics of Yubari's past, and finds there is still life in the city.
