Hanoi (VNA) – “The Start of Japan” programme will begin broadcasting on Vietnam Television (VTV) channels to introduce Japanese culture and tourism to the public, told VTV to a press conference in Hanoi on December 14.

Co-produced by the Japanese Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan’s Nara Television, and VTV, the programme is part of activities celebrating the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties and the project on the overseas development of broadcast content.

This is the second project that the VTV has partnered with Nara Television. Both projects were conducted in two years by two different production staff.

Five series, entitled “Yamatokoriyama – the home of goldfish”, “Nara – the start of healthcare welfare”, “Yoshino – the origin of modern forestry”, “Shuttlecock and national construction”, and “Yamato – the origin of Japanese swords”, will be broadcast on VTV1 channel in December 2018 and January 2019, then later on VTV4, VTV3, and other VTV channels.

Narrated by MC Son Lam, a familiar face on “Moving 24h” and “Wechoice: journey for inspiration”, audiences will see similarities in culture and lifestyle between Vietnam and Japan.

Director of Nara Television Nagaoka Masami said the programme will enable Vietnamese audiences to gain a closer insight into the culture and lifestyle of people of Japan and Nara in particular. –VNA
