1980s Shogun TV settings in Mie?
Those of us of a certain age in the UK will remember from the 1980s the TV miniseries 'Shogun'. For a lot of us it was a fascinating glimpse into Japanese history and and its culture and inspired the majority of us it to want to know more about Japan and the Japanese. I was one of those people and I hope to visit Japan next year and (for a bit of nostalgia) hope to visit the place where the small fishing village (Anjiro) was created for the series. I don't believe there will be much left of the film set as I know it was all swept away by a typhoon as soon as the filming finished, but it would be nice to see were it once was.
I understand it was on the coast near the towns of Owase or Nagashima? in the Mie Prefecture.
I did find a a map reference 136.28888 East, 34.162808 and attempted to find it on Google Maps street view.
It was all rather inconclusive as looking on Street View I did see a sort of lay-by with some signs but they were in Japanese and too small to read.
There was nothing on Google to inform me of anything.
Has anybody visited the place and if so how did you get there?
I was thinking of hiring a car in Kyoto or Osaka and take in this place on the way to the shrine of Ise.
Can anybody give me some advice on this?
Thanks from the UK and any help would be much appreciated.
