A new picture of James May as 'Our Man in Japan'
May dressed as a Samurai for his upcoming Amazon series
James May returned from filming a solo series for Amazon Prime earlier in the summer. Since then things have gone a bit quiet on the subject, with the series in production. However, a new picture has recently been published on the production company, Plum Pictures, website.
The picture shows a very serious looking May dressed as a Samurai. These warriors made up the ruling military class that eventually became the highest ranking social caste of the Edo Period in Japan (1603-1867). Samurai famously used a range of weapons such as bows and arrows, spears and later guns, but their main weapon and symbol was the sword.

Our Man in Japan
When the series was announced, in March 2019, May said in an interview with Deadline.com
“Japan is the most amazing place I’ve ever visited. Everything about it is a surprise: a boiled sweet, a bullet train, an unexpected ancient temple, and the challenge of eating a single edamame bean with chopsticks. It’s a class A stimulant for all the senses, and an etiquette minefield for the unwary. I intend to immerse myself in it completely, in the pursuit of enlightenment and life balance. And I bet the noodles will be fantastic.”
