Comments: Seems like it might be nothing more than a vehicle for Carrie Ann Inaba to show how hip she is, but turns out to be a pretty good survey of some interesting, if marginal aspects of contemporary Tokyo because it treats them as interesting rather than point-your-finger-at-them and giggle smugly at how "weird" the Japanese are ... the way Jonathan Ross does.

Summary: TOKYOLOGY is a documentary exploring contemporary Japanese pop-culture.

Vicariously experience the diverse and colorful attractions of the world’s largest city, as Carrie Ann Inaba guides you through the legendary crowds of Tokyo.

Have fun at the blasphemous Christon Cafe, sneak behind the scenes at a Japanese Rock TV show that pretends it’s shot in Los Angeles, stroll around fashionable Harajuku, go clubbing with outrageously costumed goths, or end the night at a super-stylish hair salon that is open for business until eight in the morning.

But there’s more to Tokyo than crazy nightlife and entertainment: from anime to architecture, political art to gaming, from shopping and style to the Cherry Blossom festival, the city has something for everyone, and its share of surprises, too!
