To those who have yet to travel there, NHK Broadcasting offers television viewers the next best thing to having personally explored the streets of Tokyo, Japan.
NHK World TV's TOKYO EYE has spent the past several years informing me on aspects of Japanese living and culture that might otherwise remain forever unknown to foreigners living outside Japan. Of particular fascination to me is contemporary Japanese society and how observance of centuries-old traditions has evolved to co-exist with modern urban ideals. TOKYO EYE regularly explores this progression through investigative video features highlighting Tokyo's latest innovations in fashion, consumerism, and entertainment, alongside time-honored conventions in those and other cultural arenas.
