It's raining
today in Tokyo

No YanMega filming.

It's a day off for Shinagawa
But Narimiya's working

But he is working [laugh]

More details
coming up.

●Shinagawa Daichi Staff●

Overnight Stay
17th May 2010 19:29

For today's filming...
I'm in Yugawara

I went to the waterfall

I rang a bell on a hill

I got into the bath

Quite an active day

Despite this being an overnight stay,
I only brought my pants and PC
as I overslept this morning

Because this is a rustic and lovely ryokan
There's no internet connection


Well it can't be helped!!

This has been Shinagawa Daichi.

Busy Searching
18th May 2010 17:13

It's the 2nd day in Yugawara

was the overnight

I entered the bath
Feeling slightly tipsy
I didn't notice any ghosts...

I felt refreshed in the morning

But staying all alone
in a ryokan
Can be quite scary~

All the while
I forgot that I was actually in a ryokan
Suddenly though it came to me

The staff asked me
"Did you go out yesterday?"
But I was really fast asleep

Or maybe
It's just that the ryokan was so wonderful

I found these at the ryokan

I really miss these

"Where's Wally"

I love them

I used to have the whole volume
I wonder where they are now

Without delay
We searched for Wally together

Hana-chan is really quick
Somehow Izumi is always last

It's like the opposite
from the drama

We're all getting along well
during filming~

This has been Shinagawa Daichi.

Among other features, entering data into the phone enables you to check if your calorie intake is balanced. "By keying in what you eat, you can control your diet. It will tell you what nutrients you lack and prove to be useful in managing your health daily," said Horikita. 'i Bodymo' also has a 'Motion Support' feature, which can record the number of steps taken as you walk or the distance you have jogged, enabling users to chart their daily physical activity.

Bokura no Ongaku
14th May 2010 18:40

The other day, we did a recording for 'Bokura no Ongaku'.
The musician talk was with Suga Shikao-san.

'Bokura no Ongaku' is the kind of program where the first encounter takes place as the camera rolls and the talk begins.
Therefore there's this pleasant tension in the air on location.

For Mao-san who is anxious about meeting strangers, she felt very nervous at first. But with Suga Shikao-san's friendly nature, the recording went forward smoothly!
The content of the talk... lively discussions about work and personal life too♪

"Really love it!!" said Mao-san about Suga Shikao-san's new song, 'Sayonara Home Run'. A song she took a liking to♪

The lyrics get to your heart as well...

And the last time she was on 'Bokura no Ongaku', he made an appearance on the blog too, producer Sakura Shin-san♪

Mao-san was delighted to receive a T-shirt as a present!!
'Bokura no Ongaku' goes on-air on the 21st (Friday) at 23:30~!
Everyone, look forward to it♪♪
