Inoue Mao Staff Diary
7th March 2010

Los Angeles ①
7th March 2010 13:12

The day after the preview of 'Darling wa Gaikokujin', we went to LA to shoot for Shonen Magazine♪
The shoot was with Kodansha's M-san, writer Kuriyama-san, cameraman Saito-san and assistant Nakajo-san, who have always taken care of us.
With such fun members, the shoot went smoothly without a hitch!!

(Day 1)
Even in the outskirts of LA, it was cloudy...
When it cleared up a little, the shoot started!!

Feeling jet-lagged, there was a sleepy atmosphere in the bus but this scenery was impressive♪
Actually, there was a pretty strong breeze blowing and it got cold. All the sleepiness was jolted out of Mao-san (*laugh*)
During shooting, the rain would stop, then heavy rain as we're changing locations, it'll stop again during shooting... and the cycle went on!
Known Rain Man M-san was uttering prayers in the car (*laugh*)

Then, we arrived at BAGDAD CAFE. Took a photo with the cafe assistant as a keepsake♪

This cafe had also been used in a movie, a famous place for those in the know.
Mao-san also took many photos with her own digital camera.
Then, Mao-san wrote the name of all the staff who came for the location shoot in the cafe's guestbook and also did some publicity. 'Darling wa Gaikokujin opens 10th April! Watch it!' (*laugh*)
If you ever go there on a trip, check it out!
The sky was always cloudy, but in contrast the sexy...
During dinner, everyone was looking over the photos admiringly.
There were many beautiful and fantastic shots.
Mao-san was squirming as she was repeatedly scrutinized! She felt embarrassed♪


The writer Kuriyama posted some photos from the LA trip.
