What is Paul Hollywood Eats Japan about?

Hollywood is a box office name in the baking world, so what better country to send him around than Japan. In his eyes, it’s a land without bread.

The Bake Off judge travels around the nation on a three-week journey to discover some of the finest culinary experiences Japan has to offer.

In Tokyo alone he experiments with the pot noodle obsession, themed restaurants including one which sees Paul eating in a prison cell and another restaurant stripped directly from science fiction which includes flavour enhancement booths to focus full attention on the food itself.
