Japan Radio Wellington
This radio programme is organised by the Japan Society of Wellington.
The Japan Society of Wellington promotes understanding of Japanese language, culture, and technology in the Wellington region. It holds monthly meetings at the Japan Information and Culture Centre on Willis Street. We wanted to reach out to a wider audience via radio and podcasts to inform about Japanese related events, associations, and businesses in Wellington, and to link together people interested in Japan, including Japanese living or studying here.
The show's content is mostly easy listening Japanese, with English explanations added, lots of traditional and modern music and often a specific theme per episode. Different episodes will feature different amounts of Japanese and English, and music.
Listeners can contact us for comments and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org
The programme broadcasts fortnightly on Fridays, 6-6.30, with each episode repeated the following week.
