Yay! We received a package from Japan today. It's a 2011 Calendar from NHK World. We were so surprised! I know it's just a calendar but it's from our favorite tv network so it means a lot. It's a sure keepsake!
By the way, just in case you haven't heard of NHK WORLD, it's the international broadcasting service of NHK or Nippon Hoso Kyokai. Its programs are mostly about Japan. To know more, please drop by their website.
It's Channel 68 on Global Destiny cable tv (Philippines) - not sure if it's the same on other cable providers -- probably not. They have a lot of great programs. Our personal favorites are Begin Japanology, At Home with Venetia in Kyoto, Tokyo Eye, Journeys in Japan, Tomohiro's Railway tour of China, Today's Close-up, Japan Unlocked, Professionals, and NHK Special. They have a lot of nice shows. Sometimes they have a special program or a special series that will only be aired on a certain week. Everything is worth watching especially if you love Japan like we do.
Please check the channel some time. Their TV schedule is here.
Arigatou Gozaimasu! =)
