Filming Location: Bambino! Baccanale Trattoria

Remember when our stoic Matsujun came to Tokyo for being an intern at one Italian restaurant? But then he was scolded by everyone (oh, I love those scenes). Remember the tempting pasta that they served?  Yes, we are talking about the manga-adoption dorama in spring 2007 called Bambino!.  This time, we’re gonna take you to Baccanale Trattoria and meet Ban Shogo.

Baccanale

Yes, that building is real! But, of course, it is not Baccanale, neither a restaurant. We assume that this is just an empty building rented for dorama/movie shoots. And we’re not curious enough to find out what’s inside. Let us know if you’ve tried 😉

To get there, take Oedo or Tozai Line to Monzen-nakacho station. After that, you need to walk for 8-12 minutes (depends on the route and of course your walking pace). We suggest  you to follow the flyover so you won’t get lost:

Exit 6 Monzen-nakacho Station (left), cross the street, and follow the flyover as seen on the right pic.

Exit 6 Monzen-nakacho Station (left pic), cross the street, and walk to the north-west by following the flyover as seen on the right pic.

keep on walking on the left side of the flyover, you'll meet the green bridge with slightly romantic view

keep on walking on the left side of the flyover, once you see a green bridge, cross it and enjoy this slightly romantic view

the first junction is right after the bridge, you can also take that route, but the left pic shows the second junction that we took. from there, you can already see a bit of the building. take few more steps to see the whole building on your left side.

For your consideration, our route is slightly further than what Google Map may suggest you. We decided to present you this route as we found it easier, especially for those who are bad at remembering things (yes, that’s us). We tell you this in advance that there is no other train station nearby. It is thus important for you to have something to guide you back to Monzen-nakacho station. Don’t get lost, because our Bambino is there waiting for you to come :p

Ingat waktu si stoic Matsujun ke Tokyo untuk menjadi intern di salah satu restauran Italia? Terus dia malah dimarahin habis-habisan sama yang lain (LOL). Ingat berbagai menu pasta menggoda yang mereka sajikan? Yup, kita sedang membahas dorama adaptasi manga yang tayang di NTV pada musim semi 2007 silam:  Bambino!.  Kali ini kami akan membwa kamu ke Baccanale Trattoria dan bertemu Ban Shogo.

Iya, bangunan ini beneran ada loh. Cuma tentu saja Baccanale hanya fiksi. Bangunan ini pun aslinya bukan berupa restoran. Asumsi kami sih ini hanya bangunan kosong yang memang disewakan untuk syuting dorama/film.

Untuk sampai ke sana bisa naik  Oedo atau Tozai Line ke Monzen-nakacho station. Setelah itu, kamu perlu jalan kaki sekitar 8-12 menit, tergantung dari rute yang dipilih dan seberapa cepat kaki kamu melangkah.  Kami sih menyarankan untuk jalan mengikuti flyover yang langsung keliatan begitu keluar dari stasiun.

Turun dari kereta di stasiun Monzen-nakacho, cari exit 6. Begitu keluar, kamu akan lihat ada flyover di sisi kanan. Nyebrang dulu ke arah banguan tinggi (MOS Burger) lalu terus ikuti flyover tersebut. Nanti akan ada sebuah jembatan berwarna hijau terang. Sempatkan untuk liat pemandangan di sisinya, karena cukup romantis (ihiy!)

Setelah melewati jembatan, akan ada belokan ke kiri. Kalau kamu mau bisa ambil rute ini, jaraknya kurang lebih sama. Tapi kami memilih untuk belok kiri di pertigaan berikutnya. Dari situ udah keliatan sedikit bata coklat milik si bangunan. Jalan lagi beberapa langkah dan mantan Baccanale itu pun utuh terlihat. Posisinya tepat di perempatan, jadi gampang buat difoto 😀

Sebagai bahan pertimbangan aja sih, rute yang kami sampaikan di sini relatif lebih jauh dibanding dengan rute yang dianjurkan oleh Google Map. Tapi kami merasa inilah rute yang paling gampang, terutama untuk orang-orang yang sulit mengingat jalan macam kami ini. Kenapa? Karena kamu perlu patokan untuk  kembali ke stasiun. Di dekat situ ga ada stasiun lain yang lebih dekat, otomatis harus balik ke Monzen-nakacho. Daripada nyasar dan jalannya lebih jauh, ye kan?

Selamat mencoba dan kabar-kabari yah kalau ketemu Bambino di sana 😉
