The first season and remains the most personally close to the Producers as this initial effort took a whole one and a half year time period for Contents gathering, Team coordination and sponsorship gathering to finally realise the dream to Inspire, Educate and Entertain through this TV Program. This Season will take you to various places around Japan – Hokkaido, Gifu, Sendai, Tokyo – and to explore with you the behind the scene of Japanese Anime industry, the practise of Monotzukuri in the Japanese corporate’s philosophies and of course, the Indonesian who was involved first hand in helping the post tsunami (2011) disaster recovery effort. The Producers cried (in pride and happiness) seeing the first episode aired on TV first time on 3rd Feb 2014, that Sunday morning. Hope you’ll enjoy this 1st Season!
Continuing the dream to Inspire, Kokoronotomo Team took a talented a 16yr-old Indonesian boy, Ditto, who has fallen in love since his childhood with Japanese Manga (Comic), to Japan for his very first time. We took Ditto, who has been drawing Manga on his own and has received awards for his passionate and beautiful drawings, to see first hand the real making of Manga in one of the famous Manga studio in Tokyo. You can only imagine how touched and disbelieved he was to finally be able to fulfil his childhood dream! This Season will also introduce you to the Japanese wife of the Indonesia’s first President, Ratwa Sari Dewi Soekarno. She will surprise you of how she has been keeping herself busy these days in Japan.
