Four Japanese streaming TV channels to watch for current news, four Japanese newspaper sites and translations
by Larry Geller
If you understand Japanese, you may want to try watching Japanese streaming TV for up-to-the-minute information on the earthquake/tsunami and nuclear reactor situations. Here are four streaming TV channels you can watch. Pass the info on to neighbors who may be concerned. Not all of these work all the time.
If anyone knows of any other reliable streams, please let me know and I’ll add them.
Below the video are four Japanese newspaper sites and Google translate links. Some papers have English editions as well, but usually news breaks on the main website.
