Tour Tokyo temples with me, on NHK’s “Tokyo Eye”


Join me on the next episode of NHK’s “Tokyo Eye” to learn about three unusual temples in Tokyo, all of which I hereby certify are truly worth a visit. To find out why, tune in! I don’t want to give too much away, but my co-host Jason Hancock and I cover Jindaiji in Chofu, Honganji in Tsukiji and Fukagawa Fudoson near Monzennakacho Station. Each had its own VERY peculiar charm!


If you live outside Japan, you can see this half-hour program on your NHK World cable channel this coming Wednesday, March 13. It will be broadcast internationally five times that day, once every four hours. Check your local listing for broadcast time, or look it up here.

It will also stream on the NHK World website (in the upper right-hand corner under the “Now on Air” banner) at the following times (Japan time): 9:30, 13:30, 17:30, 21:30; 1:30, 5:30.

Here in Japan, it will air on NHK’s education channel (channel 2) Tuesday, March 19, from 15:00. You an catch a clip now on the Tokyo Eye page on the NHK World website. That will change when they start advertising the following week’s show.
