Filming Location: Platina Data – Shinagawa Station

In Japan, a train station is not only for those who commuting everyday. It also serves as a meeting place, a shopping arcade, a food court, and a -common- shooting location. Go watch Japanese movies, doramas, anime, or variety shows. They often have scenes set in a train station, if not or in addition to the scene inside the train.

This time we go with a 2013 movie starring Ninomiya Kazunari: Pla-ti-na-Da-ta (of course you have to read it the way Nino said it in the movie). The set is when Ryuhei Kagura being chased by the police. He wandered around Shinagawa Station before he found the place to escape and hide.

Shinagawa Station has two main exits, the one on the west side is called Takanawa Exit and the one on the east side is called Konan exit. Platina data scenes  were mostly taken in the east area.

The Konan exit hosts the Atré Shinagawa Mall. Its sign was really easy to be recognize in the movie. In front of the mall, there is an area where Ryuhei Kagura was walking in a hurry avoiding the police. You can find a pair of statues as the landmark.

Last but not least, there is one scene that was taken on an elevator that is impossible to recreate. Because it is almost impossible to have no one in your frame while you are in this station, unless you shoot a movie. Unless you are Ninomiya Kazunari.

If you have not seen Platina Data, kindly read its synopsis or watch the trailer. This movie is not my favorite Neen’s, but Nino played a double personality characters here is something remarkable.

      Hi Genta! Untuk nemuin lokasi shooting biasanya kami dapatkan pada situs ini: http://www.accessify.com/visit?domain=loca.ash.jp. Situsnya dalam bahasa Jepang tapi bisa pakai Google Translate buat bantu nerjemahin. Terkadang ga semua lokasi ada di situs itu, jadi harus googling lagi pakai keyword berbahasa Jepang (hasil copy paste dari Google Translate, hehe). Selanjutnya tinggal nyari alamat persisnya lewat Google Maps deh. Caranya gitu aja sih…. Intinya Google is our best friend, hahaha. Tapi kalau mau ga ribet, bisa kok request ke kami. Insya Allah bakal kami bantu pinpoint lokasinya (meski sering slow response, hehe).
