Filming Location: Yamada Taro Monogatari – Park Alley

We’re back with another filming location for one of our favorite doramas: Yamada Taro Monogatari! This location is actually a park and quite far from Tokyo’s city center, but it’s lovely. Just take a look at this scene:

Oh, they are actually cherry blossom trees! Bet it’s gonna be very beautiful during spring

This park is called Tatsumi no Mori Green Park. You can reach it by taking Yurakucho Line until Tatsumi Station. From the exit 2, you just have to follow the long and beautiful skywalk, while enjoying the view of Koto’s highways.

That skywalk takes you directly to the park. It is a large park but very quite. Not so many people we found there. But don’t worry, you won’t get lost. If you see this kind of thing (please refer to the picture below because, seriously, we don’t know how to call it), you’re on the right track. Go straight and you will end up at the alley.

This long and beautiful pathway is perfect for shooting, as we said before, there is rarely people passing. The benches on its both side are pretty comforting, though. You can take a sit and read a book while enjoying the sound of nature. Or you can also have a little picnic time by having lunch and wefie resting a bit, just like we did.

Actually, across that alley, there is WOWOW’s broadasting center. Yes, the one that aired V6’s concert last year. Too bad, it seems that this TV station doesn’t have tour or display area that we can visit. It’s okay, so just to let us know its location.

Yeah! Kali ini kami membawa kalian ke lokasi lain dari dorama Yamada Taro Monogatari. Ini adalah tempat di mana Yamada Taro dan Takako biasa berjalan dari atau ke sekolah. Tempatnya keliatan indah bannget di dorama, jadi penasaran ingin lihat aslinya kan?

Ini adalah semacam jalan setapak di salah satu taman di pinggiran Koto, Tokyo. Tamannya cukup luas dan aksesnya pun mudah. Tinggal naik kereta Yurakucho Line, lalu turun di stasiun Tatsumi. Dari situ jalan kaki kurang dari 10 menit. Ambil exit 2, akan ada jalan layang yang khusus untuk pejalan kaki. Jalan layang ini cukup panjang dengan pemandangan jalan tol yang melintang di kanan-kiri atas-bawahnya.

Di ujung jalan layang itulah si taman berada. Namanya Tatsumi no Mori Green Park. Akan ada sejenis batu berbentuk kerucut yang tepat berada di tengah taman. Lurus saja, ikuti jalan, nanti akan tembus di lorong tempat Nino dan Tabe Mikako jalan (sambil flirting #eh)

Ceritanya Nino dan Tabe Mikako

Taman ini bisa dibilang sepi, waktu kami di sana mungkin hanya lihat 1-2 orang. Suasananya tenang banget. Ada bangku di sisi kanan dan kiri yang pasti asik buat dipakai baca buku sambil dengar siulan burung dan semilir angin. Atau bisa juga dipakai piknik sambil makan bekal dan foto-foto macam yang kami lakukan, hehe.

Di seberang lorong ini ada gedung stasiun TV WOWOW. Itu loh, stasiun yang nayangin konser V6 di Yoyogi Stadium tahun lalu. Sayangnya, stasiun TV ini ga punya display area atau tur untuk pengunjung. Jadi ya buat sekedar tahu aja lokasinya dimana, kali aja nanti bisa ikutan suting kalau ada program anak-anak Johnny’s :p

Buat yang ketinggalan, kami juga punya postingan tentang lokasi lain dorama Yamada Taro Monogatari. Silakan cek di sidebar, atau ke Masterpost untuk lebih detilnya. Dan.. masih ada satu lagi lokasi Yamataro yang akan kami share di sini. Tunggu postingan berikutnya ya..
