Resource: Radio Garden for Japanese listening

Lifelong Japanese language learners are often looking for ways to integrate listening practice into their daily lives, whether it’s movies, podcasts, anime, TV shows, or other media we tend to download. One cool project, Radio Garden, offers another option: tuning into radio stations around the world!

Radio Garden is a digital research project developed by the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. It features a 3D map with radio stations throughout the world tagged with geolocation. Interested in some Japanese radio? You can slide over to that part of the globe and jump between whatever city features a stream and get listening!

You can also use their search function to find stations by city, mark your favorites, and jump from the radio feed directly to a particular station’s website. You can also click around and see popular or nearby stations, so it’s a fun way to explore some new listening options from wherever you happen to be!

Happy listening! 📻
