This documentary traces the life of Francisco Javier, his tour of Asian lands and in particular his stay in Japan, where he was one of the first Europeans to arrive in the islands, half of the sixteenth century. The documentary contrasts the history of the Jesuit missionary and heritage that still exists among Japanese, more than Catholics, culinary traditions, the evolution of the watch and the press, the celebration of marriages, or the influence of universities and schools run by the Jesuits.
