RocketNews24 has a cool story about how a Japanese variety show stumbled into an expose on Freemasonry.
The show, You ha Nani Shi ni Nihon e? asks foreigners as they arrive at a Japanese airport why they came to Japan. They then follow these people for a little while learning more about them and what they’re doing. One of the people they approached came to Tokyo to take part in the initiation ceremony of a new Grand Master in Tokyo. The film crew were invited inside the Grand Lodge in Tokyo and got a peek at something few outside of Freemasonry ever get to see.
I like the idea of the show itself, and I love how something so simple can turn into something quite interesting.
