“Set in the stunning green hills overlooking Kyoto. Amazingly, this entire wooden temple was built without a single nail.”
“My dad would have loved that fact,” the presenter added as she reflected on her family loss.
Jane was very close to her mum Jean, who was also a singer and her dad, who worked as a miner.
The 60-year-old, who lived at home until she was 45, lost her mum in 2016.
Speaking in a previous interview before Jean died, Jane said her singing ability came from her mother.
She said to Express.co.uk: “My vocal talents come from my mum Jean.
“She has a beautiful voice yet has never had the confidence to perform.”
Jane McDonald: Lost in Japan returns next Friday at 9pm on Channel 5.
