Asahi Broadcasting Corporation

Established in 1951, the Asahi Broadcasting Corporation is the third oldest commercial broadcaster in Japan. For the past sixty years, we've been broadcasting television and radio programs from Osaka, Japan's second largest city.
This region in which we are located includes Kyoto and Nara, two historical cities full of cultural heritage sites. The area has flourished as the center of Japan's culture and history for more than 1,400 years.
Making the best use of all this potential, we at ABC have and will continue to produce creative and informative programming for the world.
