by Mieke - TripleLights travel specialist

Stay up to date with the NHK World Radio app. It brings you various news radio programs, updated constantly, but also
written news articles. You can select from 14 different languages including, of course, Japanese.
Get it on your iPhone, or on your Android. 

NHK World also offers a news television app, for those who like images with their news. This app is available for iPhone, iPad, Android and even Kindle (also free).

Up-to-date With NHK World Radio
NHK is relatively politically neutral, but if you prefer news with a tad more political orientation, try Yomiuri news for a more conservative stance, or Mainichi news for a more liberal stance (currently only offering their websites in English and their apps in Japanese).

He pickend us, group of four, up at the cruiseport, right in time and showed us the best spots of Kyoto. Behause our time was limited due to the departure of our cruise ship, we had to cut the prorgram, but it was no problem for Shogo. He made optional suggestions and arranged everything. It did not bother him,even to give up lunch and buy a sandwich in the supermarket. Thanks for all, Shogo!

Toshi is extremely knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to ensure our private tour was optimized to our preferences (walking speed, number of attractions, time spent at each attraction, number of food stops, etc.). He knows Tokyo like the back of his hand, and had a great ability to help narrow down the hundreds of food stands we passed to the truly good ones (which definitely requires local k...
