  • About a year ago, I was invited to a wedding in Japan.

  • A woman named Kayo, who's Japanese, is marrying a Japanese-American, and she and her husband, she said, are big fans of yours truly.

  • They invited me to their wedding which was really nice.

  • They sent me all these treats.

  • I couldn't go, of course, but I'm here, I'm now in Tokyo.

  • And I found out where they're living, which is right down here, so, let's go say hi.

  • Anybody there?

  • Hi.

  • Hi.

  • Hi, how are you?

  • I'm here.

  • Hi, how are you?

  • You are, what's your name?

  • I'm Michael.

  • Michael, hi.

  • And you?

  • Kayo.

  • Kayo. Kayo, come here.

  • Wow.

  • Wow. Hi, how are you, yeah, how's it going?

  • Fabulous.

  • Yeah, how was the wedding?

  • It was great actually.

  • Yeah, sorry I missed it.

  • That's OK.

  • Sorry, I wanted to be there.

  • Yeah.

  • But I realized it's 6,000 miles, and I don't know you.

  • Mind if I come in?

  • Oh, beautiful.

  • Thank you.

  • Beautiful.

  • I wish I had been able to go.

  • Would it be cool if I crash here tonight?

  • Yeah.

  • OK?

  • Yeah. That's weird.

  • What do you mean, "it's weird?"

  • This is just a man you invited to your wedding, showing up a year later, and lying in bed with you and your husband.

  • I know that you guys are fans of the show.

  • Yes.

  • What are the things that you like most about the show?

  • Jordan, what's his-

  • Schlansky.

  • You like Jordan Schlansky?

  • I like.

  • But he's so weird.

  • I know, he talks a lot.

  • He talks a lot.

  • And sometimes he irritates me, doesn't he?

  • Really?

  • Do you see it? Wouldn't he irritate you?

  • You don't think he would irritate you?

  • No.

  • OK, well that's good, because we have a gift for you.

  • Come on in, Jordan.

  • I look around your house, and I see a lot of clues that this is representative of Japanese culture.

  • I see minimalism.

  • I see that every object has a place.

  • I see that every object belongs somewhere.

  • There is almost a spiritual energy here.

  • Do you have a bathroom I could use?

  • And, in fact, I can see that everything is placed very carefully.

  • I'll be right back.

  • It never appears that something just fell into place.

  • For example, you have smart choices and minimalist choices.

  • When I see few things, I look at each thing, and it makes me go deeper into each of those things.

  • So I'll like, I'll look at your Lego toys right there, and I look very deep, and I can see all the details and the minutiae.

  • Now these are details that you toiled over.

  • We do 42 weeks a year, so now you're talking about 42 weeks of shows a year.

  • Now how can I maintain my sense of self in a world that wants to defeat me?

  • It requires incredible strength.

  • It requires fortitude.

  • It requires determination.
