From 33:33 on in the video:
"I spent some time in Japan last year : they don't have any tradition like that. What's wrong with them?"
Ken Ham gets into cultures all over the world having traditions of the Flood.
Which is true, but doesn't answer the question about Japan.
To Shintoism, the Age of the Gods lasts up to accession of Emperor Jimmu - in 660 BC.
And this mean, they have a very isolationist view ... by concentrating on Japan, which was possibly created by volcanic eruptions during the Flood and certainly peopled after that, as to the present majority population as well as to the older Ainu, they can avoid questions about the Flood.
Jimmu is said to have an ancestry involving a sun goddess. Julius Caesar is said to have an ancestry involving a love goddess. Puduhepa actually was priestess to both types of goddess, and she identified them as one goddess, according to what I have gathered from Hittite records, via specialists, via wikipedia (German wiki, I think). This means Jimmu and Caesar could both descend from Puduhepa. That part could be true.
But if someone descends from Puduhepa, and recorded history (however mythological in taste) is unknown to a people before him, replaced by purely divine myths, this means the people so ignoring history before him will not have a history which reaches back to the Flood./HGL
