Japanese Online Radio?

Post by Elariah » Sat 01.16.2010 8:35 am

A part of my inspiration for learning japanese is japanese pop music. My favorite is Ayumi Hamasaki.

But I'd like to listen to more modern japanese pop, so I'm looking for a japanese pop radio station based in japan that I can listen to over stream.

I'd probably simplify that and say I'm looking for japan's equivelent of Heaft FM, BBC Radio 1, Galaxy Radio etc...

Anyone know some good ones?

Hey there,

Well theres some sites that stream radio, for example http://kawaii-radio.net/ and http://www.japanaradio.com/. But these aren't official Japanese broadcasters, just international ones solely for music.

If you want the real deal, i.e. the radio stations from Japan, the only way I know is to download this thing called Keyhole TV (just Google it). It mostly for streaming live television, but you get the radio channels on there, too - like NHK radio, TBS radio, KBS radio, so on.

If you need further assistance, lemme know. :D

I just installed the Keyhole TV and spent about 15 min watching the Nihon TV channel and I'm not sure how to feel or what to think :ninja: It seemed like a solid block of commercials and the only words that come to mind are amazing, strange, neat, and bizarre. Definitely the weirdest thing I've seen since the PoppinS video of "Happy Cosmos" :shock:

I need more :lol:
