On the evening before Christmas Eve, Norwegian salmon was spotlighted in thousands of Japanese homes in the Kanto region when TV channel TV Asahi broadcast a Christmas special on it.

Japan does not celebrate Christmas as we know it in Europe, although this particular evening has a Christmas feel to it as the Japanese gather in their homes and watch TV.

On Saturday, 23 December, TV Asahi broadcast a one-hour Christmas special in the popular programme series “Chokusai no Ookoku”, or “Colourful Country Food”, which on this occasion was all about Norway and salmon.

Viewers were fully introduced to what differentiates Norwegian salmon from traditional Japanese wild salmon, courtesy of a TV team that visited Norway and filmed part of the programme at a salmon farm in western Norway. The programme was presented by the well-known Japanese actress Hiroko Yakushimaru.
