NHK WORLD TV’s many creative travel programs feature tips to help you experience Japan like an expert. Programs include Tokyo Eye 2020, which focuses on Tokyo’s transformation as it prepares for the 2020 Summer Olympic games; Core Kyoto, a deep dive into the ancient capital of Kyoto; and Journeys in Japan, an insider’s guide to Japan’s many treasures, including traditional festivals and the best hiking spots throughout the country.


Learn about the history of favorite Japanese dishes, along with etiquette and recipes, on the NHK WORLD Japanese Food website. Discover the art of eating sushi like a native (tip: eat it upside down so the fish comes into contact with the tongue first)—and learn how sake is considered sacred in the Shinto religion (a spiced version known as o-toso is drunk at New Year’s to ward off illnesses).


Tune in to NHK WORLD TV for the latest news from Japan, Asia, and the world. The unique and diverse blend of programming includes NHK Newsline, which delivers live hourly news, business, and weather updates, and Newsroom Tokyo, which explains the day’s developments in depth. Other programs explore Japanese society, politics, and scientific advancements.
