Why we love watching NHK World TV?

Updated on October 15, 2015


NHK World TV is a wonderful channel. It broadcasts programs worldwide about Japanese culture, festivals, food, trends, creativity, technology and many more. Newsline is aired on this channel which shows both domestic and international news around the world.

It began broadcasting on April 1, 1998. NHK World TV is one of the three services of NHK World. NHK World is the international broadcasting service of NHK. NHK is Japan's national public broadcasting organization.

Services of NHK World:

1) NHK World TV: It is broadcast in English.

2) NHK World Radio Japan: It broadcasts news and information in 18 languages. Arabic, Bengali, Burmese, Chinese, English, French, Hindi, Indonesian, Japanese, Korean, Persian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Swahili, Thai, Urdu, Vietnamese.

3) NHK World Premium: It broadcasts in the Japanese language. Along with news and information programs, it airs dramas, children's, sports, entertainment, cultural and art programs.

Some of the programs that we watch:

1) Seasoning the Seasons:

This program is about Japanese culture and how it is influenced by each season. There are many festivals for each season and Japanese people seem to enjoy their festivals.

2) At Home with Venetia in Kyoto:

This program revolves around Venetia Stanley-Smith, who is an expat living in Ohara, Kyoto, and how she leads her simple life in harmony with nature. She loves gardening. She moved to Japan after living in India. She was born in London, United Kingdom. Ohara is a place full of beautiful scenery.

3) Journeys in Japan:

As the name suggests, this is a program in which travellers, foreign and Japanese, are shown. The travellers are shown visiting many places in Japan. The beautiful scenery of Japan is shown, along with the local places of Japan and the people, their lifestyle and much more.

4) Tokyo Eye:

This program shows about the city Tokyo and the wonderful parts of the city.

5) Tokyo Eye 2020:

This program is just a continuation of Tokyo Eye. Tokyo is going to host the 2020 Summer Olympics. This program shows the changes that are happening in Tokyo as the city prepares for the 2020 Summer Olympics.

6) Japanology Plus:

Many things about Japan are shown, according to its name.

7) cool japan:

People around the world think Japan is cool. This program shows why people feel so. A group of foreigners go to places around Japan and tell their opinions about all things that are Japanese.

What I feel?

All these programs are interesting to watch. We get to learn many things about Japan and the Japanese people.

Watching these programs gives us a positive outlook of life and makes us feel happy about living our lives so that we are able to watch these programs everyday. It gives us hope.

When I wake up every morning the first thing I do is see the TV Schedule of this channel. As we watch these programs, we're completely involved and we do not think about anything else. We also get to watch important news from all around the world.

We can experience the ‘Real Japan’ as the channel says.
