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:

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!

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: Boulangerie Sudo


Tourists may not be familiar with the name of this place. We also didn’t know anything about it until we saw one of Himitsu no Arashi-chan episodes (TBS, aired 2011.04.28). Nino and Leader took the guest, Horikita Maki, to one bread shop in Setagaya.
