Listen to Japanese Radio Online

Found a great site for listening to Japanese Radio online. The site is 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: 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!

      Oh okay, good to know thanks. Well I’m sure it will work if you try to access it via Proxy, SSH Tunnel or VPN ^^

        maybe it’ll work via SSH tunnel or VPN, but i never managed to run it through proxy or TOR network (“ExitNodes {jp}” in torrc – works for many sites where proxy doesn’t).
