JAPAN Program Catalog Information

JAPAN Program Catalog is one of the biggest online catalogs of Japanese TV contents that introduces programs and movies of major broadcasters in Japan, not only in Tokyo but also in various regions. As of September 2017, about 30 broadcasters are participating and the number is expected to increase. What makes JAPAN Program Catalog different from other online catalogs is the volume of the programs from Japanese regional broadcasters. Those programs are filled with the charms of their region. Food, craftworks, tradition… many hidden treasures of Japan can be found in their programs. Since taking over the site in April 2017, BEAJ (Broadcast Program Export Association of Japan) have been developing the system and trying to attract the attention of both Japanese broadcasters and international buyers.
