Event Reports

The 36th Bite of Seattle was held at Seattle Center from July 21 to July 23, 2017 and attracted nearly 400,000 people in 3 days.

The main stage was a huge blast with music performances throughout the day! NHK World TV banners decorated the stage with eye-catching Domo in the center.

NHK World TV announced the channel launch in Seattle on stage to the big crowd. “Hello Seattle! We traveled all the way from Tokyo just for this event and are having a great time!”

NHK World TV launched in Seattle/Tacoma last January in partnership with PBS station KBTC. The NHK World TV set up at the festival booth was a collaboration of the 2 channels.

Rika Yukimasa who is the co-host of Dining with the Chef performed talk shows at booth. She introduced a special episode featuring Toyama Prefecture that will go on air in August.

A big fan of Dining with the Chef came to our booth. She was thrilled to meet Chef Rika.

The NHK World TV Uchiwa fans were a big hit at this hot summer event.

This father and son took a lovely picture with NHK World TV frame.

Chef Rika provided a demonstration of Chirashi Sushi (scattered sushi) and Deep-fried Oysters with Panko. The audience could see her cooking through the mirror reflection.

The audience was intrigued with Chef Rika’s cooking techniques and useful tips.
