The children's programs in Japan were colorful, for example one showed toddlers on a brightly colored set dancing and running around to a specific music beat.
Other shows were about basic skills (including Japanese, English, and cooking) and Japanese culture. There was a documentary-like show on how noodles are made and another than explained and displayed chestnut season and preparation. More about the importance of the chestnut to Japanese people in a future post.
|Notice how low the TV cart was...the Japanese sit on the floor a lot. The fabric that Breksa Shimai (she was 9) is leaning on is actually a futon.|
More about futons in another post.
