NHK WORLD will be broadcasting internationally a 2 – day special music program NHK WORLD presents SONGS OF TOKYO. Presenting Japanese music to the world before 2020’s Olympics, the program will air on NHK World on January 1 and 2. It will also be broadcast on NHK General TV on January 8. The event will be presented by Kanjani8’s Shingo Murakami and NHK announcer Yumiko Udo.
With the 2020 Tokyo Olympics and Paralympics just around the corner, the eyes of the world are focusing on Japan. We wanted to use this opportunity to showcase Japanese culture too. The idea we came up with was “NHK WORLD presents SONGS OF TOKYO.” Over 2 nights, a number of globally-popular Japanese artists will gather to perform at NHK Hall in Shibuya, Tokyo. This performance will be broadcast internationally on NHK WORLD TV. Music representing modern-day Tokyo will resonate across the world. The program will be filmed before an audience during November 25–26 .
