In the theme week ‘On Japan’, CNN International’s Tokyo correspondent Will Ripley uncovers the latest Japanese innovations set to revolutionize how we are entertained, travel and compete in the sporting arena.
Starting this week, ‘On Japan’ is accompanied by a partnership between CNN International Commercial (CNNIC) and the Japanese global chemical company, Asahi Kasei. This international campaign is the latest partnership between CNNIC and Asahi Kasei, and spans sponsorship of the five ‘On Japan’ TV segments, a special 30-minute program as well as digital elements. In addition, the multi-platform campaign includes a native ad integration on CNN Digital which includes storytelling around Asahi Kasei’s automotive business. The native solution was produced by Create, CNNIC’s branded content studio. Using CNN AIM (Audience Insight Measurement), the campaign is targeted to increase Asahi Kasei’s brand awareness amongst CNN’s upscale cosmopolitan audience of business decision makers, top managers and a curious, technically interested ‘On Japan’ audience – specifically audiences in Europe, North America and Asia.

This month, ‘Culinary Journeys’ reports from Mumbai, India's richest and most populous city.
For years, wave after wave of immigrants from all over India have travelled to Mumbai bringing their culinary treasures with them.

‘Culinary Journeys’ follows acclaimed chef Sanjeev Kapoor (pictured), a culinary master whose television cooking shows have been a guide for many aspiring home cooks. A true ambassador of Indian cuisine and hospitality, the chef takes viewers inside the kaleidoscope of colours, flavours and social gatherings that surround India's five-day festival of lights.
Religions make up a large portion of the cultural fabric of India; all the different regional variations and rituals are reflected in its gastronomy – particularly at times of festivity. Diwali is such a celebration – one that is expressed through the medium of food.
