NHK headquarters in Shibuya, Tokyo

NHK (日本放送協会, Nippon Hōsō Kyōkai, Japan Broadcasting Corporation) is Japan's public television and radio broadcaster. Its headquarters is located in Shibuya, Tokyo, next to Yoyogi Park.

NHK Studio Park is a part of the NHK Broadcasting Center that is open to the public. For a small entrance fee, it gives visitors a chance to look behind the scenes of NHK broadcasting.

At NHK Studio Park, visitors can observe how television programs, such as the historical Taiga Drama and popular morning dramas, are being recorded. On weekdays from 1:27pm, visitors can watch the nationwide live broadcast of the talk program "Studio Park kara konnichiwa" from behind the scenes.

Furthermore, visitors can participate in hands-on experiences in voice dubbing and program creation, including the production of a news program (same-day reservations required). There are also a 3D theater, an archive of popular television programs of the past, and information about NHK, its history and current popular programs. Finally, there is a shop where NHK related goods can be purchased.

Visitors participate in a hands-on experience as news announcers, weather girl and camera operator

Hotels and Ryokan
The trend setting district of Shibuya offers several hotels to those wishing to conveniently enjoy the district's many shopping and nightlife options. But Shibuya's location along the Yamanote Line and multiple subway lines, also make it a convenient base to explore the entire city.

The Tokyu corporation runs not only a lot of Shibuya's shopping facilities, but also three of the district's most prominent and convenient hotels, all located within short walks of the station. However, Shibuya does not offer many low budget choices. Unconventional lodging can be found on the Love Hotel Hill.
