The Bizarre World of Japan’s johatsu, “evaporated” people
What if someone close to you just … vanished one day? That happens to tens of thousands of families a year in Japan, and it happened to Jake Adelstein, too, back in 2018 — when his accountant disappeared, just before tax day. Adelstein, the author of Tokyo Vice, and co-host Shoko Plambeck go in search of that missing accountant and take us on a journey into the fascinating and bizarre world of Japan’s johatsu, or “evaporated” people.
The Evaporated: Gone With The Gods is a Campside Media & Sony Music Entertainment production.
