Ichi Tokyo was the number one English language news network in Tokyo where Robin Scherbatsky briefly worked as an anchor in 2008 (Intervention). While the news itself was more serious than what she had covered at Metro News 1, the network's coverage was bizarre and comical, resembling a Japanese gameshow. For instance, setting off a giant fan in the middle of a report. Robin's co-anchor was a monkey who would occasionally pelt her with marshmallows. Robin quickly quit the job and returned to New York (Shelter Island).
