Did you know that you can tour the NTV headquarters in Shiodome, Tokyo for free?


NTV headquarters moved from Kojimachi in February 2004 and is now located in Higashi-Shinbashi, Minato-ku, Tokyo.

Did you know that the headquarters building, “Nittele Tower,” is open to the public? From the second basement floor to the second floor above ground, the public can freely enter and tour the building as “Nittele PLAZA.

The highlight of a visit to Nittele Plaza is the Nittele Grand Clock designed by Hayao Miyazaki!

The Nittele Grand Clock, the symbol of Nittele Plaza, towers 12 meters high and 18 meters wide on the second floor of Nittele Plaza, and is famous as a giant clock designed by Hayao Miyazaki, which was created by hand using 1,228 copper plates.

You can imagine its enormity by the difference in size from its surroundings. It is so huge that it is scary to actually stand in front of it.

The clock tower is a mechanical clock with 32 mechanisms, and every day at 10:00, 12:00, 15:00, 18:00, and 20:00, the puppets start to move with music for about 3 minutes. The illuminated story at 20:00, when it gets dark, is especially fantastic and one of the highlights of the festival.



The plaza in front of Nittele Mysta, where the weather forecast is broadcast, is located here.

Directly below the Nittele Grand Clock is the Mysta-mae Plaza, which is used for weather forecasts and other broadcasts.

Naturally, weather forecasts are broadcast live, so if you go to the square at the time of the broadcast, you may be able to appear on the national network program. You might be able to?

Zero Studio, with its skeleton surroundings, is the studio where many of Nittele’s information programs are recorded. A typical program is “PON! The huge monitor at the top of the studio also shows programs that are being broadcast.

PON!” also features former members of AKB and the people from “Closed Shop Rattle” and “Kombanmee,” so perhaps you can meet some of the celebrities here?

Nippon Television announcer. Who is Erika Aoi?

In the summer of 2018, in the heat of the summer, “Super Shiodome Paradise! -2018 SUMMER” was held. Personally, I was interested in the “Android Announcer Aoi Erika Fortune Telling House,” which was held from August 10 to 19.

Aoi Erica is an android announcer with the latest artificial functions, and she is starting to work as one announcer at NTV.

Speaking of “NTV,” the mail-order program “Nitteleposhure” is also of interest to you!

Nittele Poshure” is the title of NTV’s mail order website and a program of the same name broadcast on the same station.

It has everything from home appliances, beauty, fashion, household goods, food, and remodeling, and it’s a sight to behold!

Incidentally, the name “Poshure” is an inverted spelling of “Teleshop,” and was the idea of Takashi Tanatsugu, the producer in charge at the time.
