What is the TV series "Tabi no chikara"? Is it an anime cartoon? Is it a kid's show which features cartoons? Does it have filming locations?

I've just come across the TV series "Tabi no chikara" while looking for "filming locations".

Apparently the episode titled 'Shi' ga ataetekureru chikara o sagashite was filmed in "Leeds" and "Wetherby".

The TV series claims to be a talk show, but going by the description, and the image, it looks like it's just an anime cartoon. If it is simply an anime cartoon, then how exactly could it have "filming locations"?

I used Google translate to find out what the title of the series and episode mean.

Tabi no chikara came up with nothing and suggested it was changed to Tabi no Chika-ra which translated as Tabi's ecstasy.

 'Shi' ga ataetekureru chikara o sagashite also came up with nothing and suggested it was changed to ’ Shi’ ga ataete kureru Chika-ra o-sa ga shite which then translated as 'し' will be appreciated so please find it. Then it came up with another suggestion for ’ Shi’ ga ataete kureru chikara o sagashite which translated as Search for the power that 'shi' gives.

I searched Google for the Japanese names, the English names, and the words "Leeds" and "Wetherby" and found nothing to suggest any Japanese anime shows or childrens shows were filmed or produced in and around Leeds.

For some reason the 1st time I posted this question it didn't post, or was deleted by someone, so I'll expand on some other problems with this TV series which doesn't seem to exist.

Where are the crew credits ie directors, producers, editors etc?
Why are all the cast listed as themselves or narrators if it's an anime show?
Where are the English titles?
Why does it have random locations around the world listed as filming locations?
Is this show even real?

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Why has my question in the IMDB community just been deleted twice?.

I want to know about the Japanese show Tabi No Chikara  https://www.imdb.com/title/tt2193116/?ref_=tt_ov_inf

To me it looks like it has multiple problems with regards to the genre, the crew, the titles, the English titles, and most of all the filming locations (which is what I was specifically asking about), but as I don't understand Japanese I can't find anything about this show.

I've asked the question about it's film locations in detail, but it got deleted.

So I posted the same question again, with additional questions about the genre, the crew, whether the titles are correct, what it's English titles are, and does it even have film locations, but again it got deleted.

Does this show even exist? And why do you keep deleting my question?

A neglected Page. Edit it to your hearts content to make it accurate.
IMDb does not research these things. We do. You and I.
Have at it and fix the listing.
Continue where I stopped.
Cheers.
Happy Holidays.

It is a talk show indeed. It is or was part of The NHK BS Premium Service. The IMDb page was created by somebody that neglected to complete it and keep it up to date.
You can research it more if you like, and pick up where I stopped here with this reply.

There doesn't seem to be much I can contribute, but at least I know it was definitely filmed in "Martin House, Wetherby, Leeds" now.

I've added the informal Engliish titles "Potential of the Journey" and "Journey that gives us energy" which are the English translations according to the article on ehospice.com.

I was going to add the director, but there's 3 people to choose from, 2 of which look likely albeit 1 more than the other.

I added the woman mentioned in the article as a translator, but as she trained as a production and licensing manager, she most likely had more involvement than that.

I still don't know what the correct English translation of that specific episode is.

I've no idea who "Slow Hand" are, and if I did know whether they were the "production company" or the "crew" I wouldn't know where to add "Slow Hand" to the article anyway

One thing I do know however is that the image needs changing to a more appropriate image, along with a more appropriate description of what the show is about.

Use the google link and do more research. Use one of the images from the internet.

I'm not interested in the show, just confirmations of locations.

I've just started searching through the 1014 titles which mention "West Yorkshire" as a location, and will probably end up looking through the 2555 titles which mention "Yorkshire" in general as a location eventually.

The reason I'm doing this is because I know of quite a lot of films and TV shows which have filmed in my city "Bradford, West Yorkshire" (along with the towns within it), yet aren't mentioned anywhere. Not even on the City's official City of Film website. Whereas neighbouring cities and towns are mentioned in some of them.

I've recently compiled a list of some other film location websites to look through.

Once I've finished looking through all the films and TV shows which filmed in "Yorkshire" on IMDB and those other websites, and have them all saved in one place online, I'm going see if I can find any more "Bradford" locations and eventually get them added to IMDB, Wikipedia, Bradford Film Heritage, my Blogger blog which I've been wanting to do for years, and any other tourism or film websites which talk about film locations.

I possibly might add any missing locations for the other "West Yorkshire" towns to IMDB eventually too, but for now I'm just focusing on my city.
