A project to deepen intellectual exchange with people involved in TV media production in ASEAN countries. We held participatory interactive workshops to share the knowledge and expertise of those working in Japanese media with TV production personnel from ASEAN countries. Additionally, we also held the “Student TV Program Production Course,” which had students co-produce a TV program with a video production company. By jointly producing and broadcasting programs with partner countries that promote the understanding of Japan, this project aimed to secure stable economic activities between both countries and to expand tourists to Japan through the promotion of the understanding of Japan and improving sentiments to Japan.

From the Organizer
Program broadcast on Ho Chi Minh City TV (May 20th 2016/Main broadcast, May 22nd, 27th, 29th/rerun). (Program on tourism in Nagano Prefecture, infrastructure in Tokyo such as subways, and food culture such as Japanese miso). It seems that there is a high degree of interest in visiting Japan for media coverage. In particular, there was a high interest in coverage areas. If we can conduct continued visits to Japan for media coverage, we can expand our circle of cultural exchange through media to various parts of Japan. On the other hand, there was a prevalent image of Japan amongst local media personnel, and there was apparently a major discrepancy between their images of Japan versus the reality. It is a major issue to deliver accurate information on Japan to local regions.
