Our public TV station is called NHK. We must pay subscription fee. However, I think that the quality of programs is high and these contents are interesting.
There are 2 channels, No.1 is general channel and No.3 is for educational channel.
Broadcasting commercial advertisement is prohibited. So we don’t need to spend our useless time. I think especially documentaries are so excellent.
And there are typical periodical dramas. One is morning drama for 15 minutes and historical drama in Sunday.
Morning drama series is on air from A.M 8:15 to 8:30 every day except Sunday. One season is 6 months and young newcomer actress performs the protagonist. There is a case that one popular morning drama became famous around Asian countries.
Another drama is on air on Sunday afternoon from P.M.8:00 to 8:45. One season is 1 year. This is base on Japanese historical events. The protagonist is historical person.
This historical drama is called “Taiga Drama” and a lot of samurais appear. Costume is very beautiful. We learn about Japanese unknown and historical events. I like to see this drama.
