Seven Days in Japan is a documentary short film that takes a look at how African-Americans and hip-hop culture are viewed abroad. Joe Doughrity is a die-hard fan of Japanese animation and happens to be black. When he decides to fulfill his dream of traveling to Japan he joins a Pop Japan Travel tour called NEO TOKYO 2004. Doughrity is joined by 16 other American travelers as they visit a well-known animation studio to see firsthand how Japanese anime is produced. The group also takes in some of Japan's most famous sights while exploring J-pop or Japanese Pop music, ganguro girls and other aspects of Japanese popular culture. To say the tourists are excited throughout the movie would be an understatement. The broad appeal of Seven Days in Japan is the way the documentary captures the contagious thrill of true fans.
