Haha, I thought the same thing. He wasn't going to find wabi sabi in there was he! I liked the final parts though in Kyoto and the Zen temple.
It was an interesting program. If somebody asked what Wabi Sabi are, I wouldn't be able to explain!! One young guy said it is in our heart. I think he expressed it very well there. I totally agree. Quite shocking to see the Maid Cafe though!
PA: Exactly... The programme would have been so much better with that part cut out :( Ah well... I'm looking forward to the 'The Story of Love & Hate' on March 30th. ;) Ukmari: I think its hard to explain Wabi-sabi. I don't think its something which has a clear definition, 'Wabisabi is.....'. Its more complex than that. I looked in my Japanese dictionary, and it doesnt have Wabisabi listed... why!? :( (Maybe a poor dictionary...)
