Fuji TV to hold anniversary party
Fuji TV will celebrate its 45th anniversary July 19-Aug. 31 with a concert by the J-pop group Tube and various entertainment events in and near its headquarters in Tokyo's Odaiba waterfront district.
The events, booths and attractions at Odaiba Bouken Ou (Adventure King) will be based on programs produced and aired on Fuji TV.
On the first floor, the Pond Square will feature attractions related to Fuji TV's variety shows. On the roof garden of the seventh floor, downtown alleys from late 1950s Tokyo will re-create the world of the children's animation series "Kochira Katsushika-ku Kameari Koen-mae Hashutsu-sho (This Is the Police Box in Front of the Kameari Park in Katsushika Ward)." Other sets and re-creations will include the Bay Area Police Station from "Odoru Dai Sosa-sen (Bayside Shakedown)" on the 22nd floor, and a replica of the Going Merry, a ship from the children's animation "One Piece," which will take passengers on a cruise in Tokyo Bay.
Fuji TV will also open its spherical observation facility on the 25th floor to show an original animated feature starring the heroes from "Astro Boy," "Dragonball Z" and "One Piece" on a 20-meter-wide screen.
Tube will perform on the first day of the celebration on a specially designed outdoor stage.
A one-day pass for Odaiba Bouken Ou is 1,000 yen for adults; 800 yen for children. Tickets to the observation facility are 500 yen for adults, 300 yen for children.
Tickets to the Tube concert are 6,800 yen. Call (03) 3470-9999 for details.
