NHK Nodo Jiman (NHK のど自慢, NHK のど じまん) is one of the longest running TV programs broadcast on Japanese NHK TV and NHK radio.


Nodo Jiman ("Proud of my voice") features amateur singers who live in the locality where the competition is held. The first competition was held on the radio in 1946, just after the end of World War II. It has been featured in two Japanese movies.[1][2]
