Let's Play with Japanese
This was the first time I had worked on a TV program. I was given the opportunity to participate in the very early stages of the project when pretty much nothing had been decided. After many extensive brainstorming sessions a pilot program was aired in January 2003. Airing of the regular program started in April.
