Tips for you
We are fans of Japanese TV (my wife having grown up in Japan) and the NHK Studio is a fun place to walk through. A few shows are actually taped there, and there are some good activities for kids, and a fake "new desk" where you can sit and the attendants take your picture. Of course there's a lot of information about recent "asa dora" (aka morning drama), such as Mare, Amachan, and Massan. It was fun, and worth a visit. If you know nothing about Japanese TV (past or current) it probably won't be for you.
