Hello fmuldoone,

 

What episode do you require? 

 

I'm looking for the "Japan's Historic Tramways" episode of NHK World's "Seasoning the Seasons". A download link was posted for it way back on page 8 of this thread in 2014, but it's gone dead. I was really hoping someone could re-upload it since it's one of the last six episodes of "Seasoning the Seasons" I need for a complete set.

Hello fmuldoone,

 

So sorry, it is no longer on the NHK On Demand website.  If it was, I could have fulfilled your request.

Yes, weird that, I missed it also and yet I check virtually every day!

 

By my calculations this should be episode 31.

Along the Sparkling River into the Heart of Japan

 

"The Nagara River in Gifu Prefecture is one of Japan's most beautiful. Running for 72.1km north-south along the stream is the Nagaragawa Railway. The run takes about 2 hours and includes 38 stations. The people who live along the line have intimate relationships with the river. A highly skilled boatwright who uses ancient techniques to build wooden river ships. A middle-aged couple celebrates the river and mountain scenery at their country inn. A man refocuses his life on the river after giving up on his dream of making music overseas."

New Episode!

 

June 1, 2019

 

The Energy of Yamaguchi's Harsh Coastline

"We depart on our 120km journey from Mojiko in Kitakyushu, Fukuoka Pref. Its grand station built in 1914 has been restored to its former glory. We travel through the world's first undersea tunnel to Shimonoseki, whose specialty is blowfish. After feasting on seafood, we head east along the stunning, azure seas of the Sea of Japan coast bound for Hagi, Yamaguchi Pref. We visit unusual sea stacks, feel the power of a millennium-old tree, and talk to the locals who live along these tempestuous seas."
