      • Don Wildman: For thousands of years the isolated islands of Japan have dominated the world stage, but on its way to the top Japan had to survive catastrophic destruction and did it by going underground. From a super bunker that survived the nuclear blast at Hiroshima, shown for the first time on national TV, to mountain fortresses built to house the entire Imperial government and subterranean mega-structures that can save the city from the strongest earthquakes and the most devastating floods and even the secret hideouts of ancient ninja warriors. It's the real story of Japan's success, and it's all underground.
