Season 100, Episode 8

Drumming Up a Life in Japan

Retired Pointer Sisters drummer Jim Ingle is ready to settle down with his wife and daughter after many years of touring and traveling the world. After becoming close friends with a family in rural Tsuyama, Japan, it started to feel like home to them so they took that as their sign to put down roots there. They love the culture and feel it's a very safe environment for their daughter, but wife Jai wants to have a modern home close to town, amenities and the school where their daughter will attend. Jim is pining for a traditional Japanese-style home with tatami rooms in a rural location like the kind both he and Jai grew up in.
