He said: "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."

Meanwhile, Amazon recently greenlit a fourth season of "The Grand Tour", which will see James, 56, team up with Jeremy, 58, and Richard, 49, once again for a series which will focus on the travel elements of the show.
