Filming begins for 2015 Taiga drama "Hana Moyu"
Filming for NHK's 2015 Taiga "Hana Moyu" began at Hagi City, Yamaguchi Prefecture, on 9 August where cast members Inoue Mao, Osawa Takao, Iseya Yusuke, Yuka, Harada Taizo and Higashide Masahiro gathered to meet the press. The drama which features the lifetime of Yoshida Shoin's younger sister Fumi (Inoue), was to have started its filming on 5 August but the progress was delayed due to bad weather and filming on the 9th itself had to be cancelled too due to the approaching typhoon No.11. With response to this, Inoue said that it was a tough fight against the rain for the cast and crew but to look at it from a good perspective, they got the chance to try many delicious foods in Hagi so their situation wasn't that bad after all. As for Osawa who plays Fumi's husband Odamura Inosuke, he asked for the viewers' support for this drama when it goes on air next year.
