Definitely the strangest TV show I've been on. Sekai de Nihongo is a general show about how the world sees Japan. They sit around a digital koi pond and the fish swim to the people who are meant to comment. There is also a CG robot announcer with an annoying high pitch voice. Welcome to Japan.

Actually, with NHK, they aren't allowed to promote any business, since it is a government sponsored channel. So the quotes about specific shops are a bit on the mysterious side. For the record, I spoke about:
Also, they didn't mention the actual name of my blog, which meant that very few people learned anything about finding great ramen from this show. Weak! I think the site stats showed about 1000 people hitting Ramen Adventures. In contrast, a prime-time show on another channel might give me 100,000 page views.
