Hanoi (VNA) –
The programme “Colours of Japan”, which will be aired on VTV3 of the Vietnam Television (VTV) from January 19, is expected to bring unique experiences for Vietnamese audience on the early days of 2018.

The programme is jointly produced by the VTV and the Tokyo Broadcasting System (TBS) as part of the activities to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Vietnam-Japan relations.

Tourism will lie at the heart of the programme, the third of its kind, according to head of the VTV international cooperation department Ho Kien.

The six-episode programme, lasting 30 minutes each, will take the audience to Japanese prefectures of Chiba, Shizuoka, Oita, Nagasaki and Yamanashi to explore breathtaking natural scenery and world-class architectures such as the biggest stone Buddha statue in Chiba, the largest tea-growing area in Shizuoka, and the longest stone bridge in Oita.

Addressing an introduction event in Hanoi on January 9, the Envoy of the Japanese Embassy in Vietnam Nagai Katsuro said the programme aims to further deepen the cooperative ties between the two countries.

The Government of Japan wants to cooperate with Vietnam, including the VTV, to host activities to mark the 45th anniversary of the bilateral relations, he added.

He hoped more Vietnamese people will come to Japan to explore its cuisine, culture and natural landscapes.

The programme was first held in Vietnam in 2016, featuring land and people of Japan, while the 2017 show focused on the theme of Vietnam-Japan gastronomic exchanges.-VNA
