TV Asahi , also known as EX and Tele-Asa, is a Japanese television network headquartered in Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo, Japan. The company also owns All-Nippon News Network.HeadquartersIn 2003, the company headquarters moved to a new building designed by Fumihiko Maki. The address is: 6-9-1 Roppongi, Minato, Tokyo, Japan.Some of TV Asahi's departments and subsidiaries such as TV Asahi Productions and Take Systems are still located at TV Asahi Center, which is TV Asahi's former headquarters between 1986 and 2003. It is located at Ark Hills, not far from its headquarters.HistoryTV Asahi began as "Nihon Educational Television Co., Ltd." on November 1, 1957. It was established as a for-profit educational television channel. At the time, its broadcasting license dictates that the network is required to devote at least 50% of its airtime to educational programming, and at least 30% of its airtime to children's educational programming. The station was owned by Asahi Shimbun, Toei Company, Nihon Keizai Shimbun, and Obunsha.However, the for-profit educational television model eventually proved to be a failure. In 1960, NET began its transformation into a general-purpose television station. It began to broadcast anime and foreign movies. So as not to run afoul of the educational TV license requirements, NET justified the airing of these programs under the pretext of "nurturing a child's emotional range" and "introduction of foreign cultures". At the same time, NET also changed its common name from "Nihon Educational Television" to "NET TV" (NETテレビ).

  • Worth the visit if you are around the area, but definately should try to visit if you are a fan of their TV shows. There is no entrance fee. They have a nice souvenir shop. You can tale pictures with some figure thats on display like doraemon. They also open until night. During summer, they will have many doraemons around a near area. It is one of the nicest TV station to visit in Japan.
  • It's free entry, even if the store is closing early. There is a big lobby with good photo opportunities as well as a small arcade with crane games if you want to try your luck. We didn't get anything after a couple tries though Doraemon everywhere
  • It's a very cool place for anime fans! They have exhibitions and constantly events.
  • Doraemon tv
  • Wonderful place to see favorite comic characters .
