Japan was always very close to John Denver s heart. As a boy he had spent some time there during a posting for his father, a US Air Force pilot, and he developed a great respect for the ancient Japanese culture. This concert from 1981 was filmed in Tokyo on John Denver s first full scale tour of the country. The success of this tour confirmed that John s music had the ability to communicate with people and touch their hearts regardless of any language barriers. The show is packed with classic songs all delivered with John Denver s characteristic charm and good humour.
