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).

Where to stay in Tokyo

Tokyo abounds with excellent places to stay, from luxury affairs to humble budget-friendly lodgings. Its glittering skyscrapers house numerous international four- and five-star hotels, both in the populous cultural hotspots of Shinjuku and in the business centers of Akasaka and Shinbashi. Meanwhile, hostels catering to the shoestring traveler lie scattered throughout the city. For a memorable, distinctly Japanese experience, seek out a ryokan, a traditional bed and breakfast with tatami floor mats and sliding screen doors.

  • We took a few photos and that's about all. I suppose you got to like TV Asahi before you entered. My wife did buy some small gifts from their shop. Not for me!  more »
  • We found Asahi TV studios when going to visit Mori Tower in Roppongi Hills, it's a nice little find to take a look around and visit the souvenier shop that's on site. It has a lot of Japanese characte...  more »

  • Free to enter. Has a shop and cafe inside. If you like the shows on this channel, then worth a visit. Display changes often. Worth a visit if you in the area but not a place to spend a whole day.
  • Interesting festivals and show promotions that go on from time to time.
  • Pretty open and accessible to take a look at what's going on!
  • Nice place if calm. Otherwise not so interesting.
  • pretty fun
