The full comments of the original author, Mr. Koyama, director Koreeda, and the main cast are as follows.
■ Original author, Aiko Koyama
It’s a real honor. Thank you! I was allowed to observe the production scenery, but it was intense. A world where various professionals, including the director, are enjoying themselves to the fullest. It was an atmosphere where blood was flowing to every corner, and power was quietly overflowing from everywhere. As a viewer, I would like to bite into the happiness of being immersed in this world. I’m really looking forward to it.
■ Comprehensive production, Hirokazu Koreeda
Mr. Kawamura told me this story, and while visiting Gion several times, the people who live in the house are unrelated communities and the whole city is an organism connected by extension telephone. First of all, I was surprised. And I was excited to work on the production, thinking that this is by no means a story of people of the past left behind in the times, but may be a hint of a new way of life that we should seek after Corona. rice field.
The role of Maiko was decided by auditioning repeatedly, side by side, regardless of career. In addition to Mr. Taneda’s large-scale and detailed set and Mr. Iijima’s cooking, I think that the ensemble created by actresses including the mother and senior geisha who surround Maiko is the greatest attraction of this work. increase. I still have some shots left, but I’m looking forward to the completion.
■ Nana Mori
As Kiyo, who I met at the audition two years ago, I spent time in that beautiful kitchen in Kyoto with a wonderful cast and staff.
When this drama reaches you, I hope you can see it all. The beautiful cityscape of Kyoto, the fascinating dance, the pulsating Kyoto dialect, the usual rice, and the laughter that echoes in the house.
I think that the space that glitters no matter where you cut it can deliver real time. I’m still shooting, but I’m looking forward to the completion.
I hope you enjoy it together.
■ Natsuki Deguchi
I’m Natsuki Deguchi, who played the role of Sumire Torai.
She wondered what to do when she heard that she was a maiko who was expected to be a talented person in a hundred years (laughs).
However, when she read the script, she felt that she wanted to be a Maiko rather than a talent, and that she was a genius of hard work, always full of dance, no matter where she was.
She had a lot of trouble with things she didn’t have, but she was able to play with the support of everyone.
It’s a kind work of people who connect with people and support Maiko, so please take a look!
■ Aju Makita
Ryoko is a character not found in the original story, and is the only lone wolf-like girl in the house that is not a maiko.
She was tsundere, but she was somehow warm and adorable.
I would like you to pay attention to how Ryoko grows up in her daily life with Kiyo Yasumire, her mother, and many people.
It was a lot of fun to shoot with Koreeda-gumi after a long time. Please look forward to.
■ Keiko Matsuzaka
I was very pleased to be able to participate in the work “Kiyo in Kyoto”, which was made by director Koreeda and everyone in the Koreeda group.
And I’m nervous because I’m a mother of a house that has been in Gion for generations.
She was taught by wonderful teachers, and she felt like a trainer.
She practiced various things, and as I talked to everyone in Gion, I realized various things. Thank you for the good opportunity.
■ Ai Hashimoto
I’ve always dreamed of being with Director Koreeda, so when I talked to him, I cried a little.
With the guidance of Mai Inoue from Dr. Yachiyo Inoue, it became a fortune above all else.
I will never forget the mysterious time of the lunar eclipse and the day when I danced under the beautiful full moon.
I think that only nice things are reflected. Please look forward to it …!
■ Mayu Matsuoka
While touching the fresh, clean and straightforward play of the young actresses who played the role of Maiko, I shared the space with my longing seniors.
Although I am still a young person, it was a very difficult time for me to work in a standing position like a gap and to remember myself a while ago while staring at my seniors who wanted to become such an adult. The eyes of the directors led by Hirokazu Koreeda were also a tightening experience.
Nowadays, it’s hard to travel casually, and I will try to give Japanese people as well as people living in other countries the time as if they were spending time in Kyoto.
■ Takako Tokiwa
It’s a huge set that I’ve never seen in a studio in Kyoto, or rather, I was trembling when I saw Gion Town, but the days when shooting progressed freely and cheerfully in it really It was a happy time. Even though there were various generations of staff and cast, I wondered why I was laughing so much every day because “this is Koreeda-gumi”.
All that remains is the shooting of the winter edition. I would like to cherish “Azusa-san’s mother” who watches over Gei Maiko and enjoy it in detail.
