Japanese TV Broadcasting Abroad

The Japan Foundation offers a variety of Japanese television programs (dramas, animations, documentaries, and feature films) to the TV stations overseas with a view to introducing diverse aspects of Japanese culture and society from traditional to modern.

We introduce many faces of Japan to people around the globe through quality Japanese TV programs.
