Opened in 1956, the NHK Museum of Broadcasting focuses on depicting the history of broadcasting in Japan.
Since broadcasting started in Japan, technology has greatly progressed from radio to television, and then later to satellite broadcasting, and High-Definition and digital broadcasting. In the Broadcasting Library, visitors can watch approximately 6,000 old NHK programs previously on-air and can obtain access to pertinent literature and information relating to broadcasting and its history. The machinery is preserved as it actually works, and the visitors can use, for example, a Western Electric Type 373 microphone, a product which is over 80 years old.'
Nostalgia buffs will appreciate seeing the evolution of Japan's broadcast technology on old television cameras. Admission: Free
