Fukai Nihon 深い日本 - Shades from Japan
In Tokyo, there is a place that no one would expect, a place to relieve stress by having fun. A true center where you can relax by fishing and following your passion at the Ichigaya fish center.
Tokyo is a great metropolis, always running, which can be chaotic and certainly stressful.
Yamadera or the "Mountain Temple", as more commonly called, is easily reached in about twenty minutes by train from the city of Yamagata, Yamagata Prefecture.
The Yamadera Temple, historic site that is within the cultural-landscape protected monuments of Japan, is a few minutes walk from Yamadera Station.
The station is served by JR Senzan line that connects the city of Sendai and Yamagata, and you can get there either from Yamagata Station in about 20 minutes, or from Sendai station in about one hour.

In a commercial campaign of a few years ago, presented by the Shiseido cosmetics company, that had proposed a video where 47 girls representing of their prefectures (after the well-publicized makeup obviously) said "I love you" in the dialect of their prefecture.
