FUJI TELEVISION’S OFFICIAL TEXTBOOK FOR “KINTAME ENGLISH” HAS BEEN RELEASED AS A PART OF THE INTERNATIONAL DEPARTMENT’S INBOUND STRATEGY - “OMOTENASHI NIPPON PROJECT.”

As many athletes, spectators and members of the media are expected to arrive in Tokyo for the Games, the project hopes to be able to provide a hospitality service for all the international guests, in a style which is unique to a TV station.
