Filming Location: Ani ni Aisaresugite Komattemasu

Yay for another requested filming location post! This time is “Ani ni Aisaresugite Komattemasu” which aired in NTV on Spring this year. Katayose Ryota from GENERATION became the lead actor here, and as LDH fans of course we just have to cover the filming location for this dorama! The locations are scattered around on several places such as Tokyo, Yokohama, and Saitama. If you have plan to visit these locations, we suggest to focus on the one in Yokohama.

Filming Location: Bambino! – Dump site

We know…. We covers filming location for “Bambino~~!” way too extensive. We have our own reasons: 1) it’s the first JE’s drama that got us into the fandom, and 2) at that time we just got our chef/cooking uniform so we kinda tried to imitate Bambino, lol.

This time we direct you to the dump site that appear quite often on the drama. It’s the place where Jun got beaten up because he messed up the soup.

Filming Location: Isle Bridge and Higashi-Shinagawa Kaijo Park

Hisashiburi! We’re back with a post on filming location, yeah! We’re gonna take you to Tennozu Isle in Shinagawa. There are at least 3 bridges in this area. But the most popular one for filming location is probably this one:

Isle Bridge

Isle Bridge

Looks familiar? Yes, you might have seen it in Lucky Seven, Yamada Taro Monogatari and many other doramas and movies (we just can’t remember them all :p). These two Arashi-member doramas took few scenes in this bridge and its surrounding area. Let’s have a look!

NHK Studio Park

NHK atau Nippon Hoso Kyokai (Japan Broadcasting Corporation) mungkin jadi satu-satunya stasiun TV yang bisa diakses secara legal melalui TV kabel Indonesia.  Dari namanya bisa ditebak kalau stasiun TV ini 11-12 sama TVRI, sarat dengan dokumenter dan berita tapi masih punya dorama dan (beberapa) variety show yang menghibur.  Wajar lah kalau NHK punya studio park yang konsepnya mendidik tapi tetap entertaining.

Filming Location: Yamada Taro Monogatari – Green Slope

Having one Arashi’s member acts in a dorama is very common. But having two of them as the lead actors in one dorama is a luxury! That’s why Yamada Taro Monogatari is precious. Aired on TBS in summer 2007, this dorama had Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari as Yamada Taro and Sakurai Sho as Mimura Takuya.

There are many scenes and places which we found memorable. Remember when those two climbed the Tokyo’s Stairways to Heaven in Atago Shrine?  This time, we’re gonna take you down the slope just like what Mimura-kun did when he was stalking Yamada-kun all the way home from school.


Yamada-kun, Mimura-kun, matte kudasai!!

Filming Location: Saigo no Yakusoku – Hill of Promise

Back in 2010, Arashi stared together in Fuji TV ‘s drama SP titled “Saigo no Yakusoku”. Of course we had to visit their filming location for the “hill of promise” scene. The real one actually called Yuuhi no Oka (hill of sunset) which is located in Sakuragaoka Park, Tama, Tokyo. It’s pretty tricky to go to this location. After getting lost several times (as usual), here we are sharing the easiest way to get there.
