Up-to-date With NHK World Radio

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).

“ A day in Kyoto with Yoshie ”

Excellent
1 day ago Traveler: LUCIA -   Tour Guide: Yoshihisa

A day with Yoshie can help understanding what we just see as tourists. He is passionate about is job and I loved his sincere desire to share his knowledge with me. So... I do not only think that he is an excellent guide but I also think he deserves the best tousists, the ones who are deeply interested in Kyoto and love also less visited temples and shrines. Grazie mille Yoshie!
