Found a great site for listening to Japanese Radio online. The site is http://radiko.jp and it seems to be a fairly new site, I think it was started late last year. Wish I’d have known about it earlier when I was in the UK. Haven’t testing if it works outside of Japan yet. I have a feeling it wont as I see it picking up my area as Chiba. Must be some kind of GeoIP service. However, would love someone to try this who is outside of Japan and get back to me.
You can check out their timetable for the radio stations here: http://radiko.jp/timetable. If you’re learning Japanese this can be a great way to immerse yourself in the langauge.
Listening to Japanese Radio stations is a great way to immerse yourself in the language – a great aid for language learners. If you’re not learning Japanese this is still a great way to discover more Japanese music!
