Government broadcaster PTV to air Filipino-Japanese Drama series “Halo Halo House”

Drama series produced by Japanese broadcaster Nippon TV, set in Ichinomiya City.

Japanese broadcaster Nippon Television has announced in an event on Tuesday that it has produced a television drama series, titled “Halo Halo House”, which will be airing on Philippine government channel People’s Television Network (PTV).


Jose can’t seem to forget a certain Japanese girl whom he met as a kid in Manila. With nothing but three leads on how to find her, he winds up in Japan. All he knows is that she’s from Aichi Prefecture and her name is Erika. The third lead is a handkerchief that brought their destinies together. With barely any money in Japan and at a loss on what to do, Jose has a chance encounter with a Japanese man who introduces him to a share house in Ichinomiya, where he ends up living. (Synopsis from PTV)
