When in Kyoto, Japan, do as the locals do… and eat fish heads? As Henry Winkler says in this exclusive preview of next week’s Better Late Than Never, “There is not enough sake in the world.”
As Winkler and his traveling companions William Shatner, George Foreman, Terry Bradshaw and Jeff Dye continue their adventure across Asia, their next stop is Kyoto, where the guys visit a geisha house and eagerly await to meet the lovely ladies. Except their “geisha” is a (very nice) young man who serves them soup. And the soup… well, it has a fish head (complete with eyeballs) floating in it.
“I found myself locked into a staring contest with my appetizer,” Bradshaw jokes. In Kyoto, the men also visit a samurai warrior school, and get schooled into shape by a no-nonsense monk. They later jet to Hong Kong, where Shatner books them into one of the fanciest hotels in the world and orders bespoke suits made by the best tailors. And their culinary horizons continue to broaden when they visit a Chinese medicine shop.
Better Late Than Never airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. on NBC.
