Travel and culture lovers and fans of Darley’s PBS series spent the evening with her the Smithsonian on Thursday, September 14th, 2017 for “Tokyo Revealed,” an insider’s look at one of the world’s most dynamic cities. Darley, host and producer of Travels with Darley and the Emmy-winning PBS series Equitrekking, recently traveled through Tokyo to film for her PBS series, using locals to guide her to the top sake breweries, neighborhoods, markets and restaurants. Attendees gained an exclusive preview of the half-hour PBS episode on Tokyo, Japan and enjoyed a sake tasting, including fun outtakes from the filming.
Darley shared insights into Japanese daily life and culture, including where to find the freshest sushi at the world’s largest fish market, how to hike a sacred mountain sprinkled with Shinto shrines, how to put on and wear a kimono, and more.
