From the end of the Edo period to the Meiji era, while being tossed by the great vortex of the times and repeatedly frustrated, he opened up the future as if he was hitting the blue sky, raised about 500 companies, and was involved in about 600 social and public works projects. In his later years, he also focused on private diplomacy and was selected twice as a candidate for the Nobel Peace Prize. Eiichi, who grew up as a farmer in Bloodwash Island Village, and Yoshinobu, who bears the expectations of a general candidate. The moment of encounter, where completely different worldviews intersect, was filmed. Eiichi (Yoshizawa) and Kisaku Shibusawa (Kengo Kora) chased Yoshinobu (Kusanagi) and his vassal, Enshiro Hiraoka (Shinichi Tsutsumi), who ran on a horse on the highway. It is a scene that depicts the first meeting of two people to convey their feelings to Yoshinobu. This scene was the very first co-star of Yoshizawa and Kusanagi. Yoshizawa said, “(Before shooting this scene) there were only scenes that were surrounded by the fields of Chiaraijima and everyone was messing around, so people who were” clicked “like Kusanagi-san and Tsuyoshi-san today. It was refreshing to be at the scene. The exchange of words had a completely different atmosphere from the tension I had up until now, and I was nervous and enjoyed. ” Kusanagi said, “Today’s shooting was a scene where I met Eiichi (Mr. Yoshizawa) and Kisaku (Mr. Takara) and hit the strong feelings I had, but it was a very nice scene where the energy of the two people was transmitted with a rush. I’m really excited that the taiga drama has begun, “he said. Comments from Ryo Yoshizawa, Kengo Kora, Tsuyoshi Kusanagi, and Shinichi Tsutsumi are as follows. ■ Ryo Yoshizawa (role of the main character, Eiichi Shibusawa)
(Before shooting this scene) There were only scenes where everyone was messing around with the fields of Chiaraijima, so people like Kusanagi and Tsuyoshi today were on the scene. It was fresh to be there. The exchange of words had a completely different atmosphere from the tension I had up until now, and I had a sense of tension and enjoyed it. “Attack the Blue Sky” is a very positive work that is truly full of energy. Eiichi Shibusawa is also a person who has not been depicted in the “Taiga” so far, so I think there are some parts where you can’t predict what kind of life you will take, but including those places, you can enjoy it together with the viewers. I think it will be a work that you can enjoy. We will do our best to work together with the co-stars, so please look forward to the start of the broadcast. ■ Kengo Kora (Eiichi’s cousin Kisaku Shibusawa)
I was running all day in today’s shoot (laughs). I will play a teenager again in future shootings, but in today’s scene it is a good work that grew up from there, so I played while thinking about how to make a difference. Kisaku is a character who has a strong desire to “for something”, and I sometimes discover that “I think and think like this”, so I hope you enjoy it on the air as well. is. ■ Tsuyoshi Kusanagi (Nariaki Tokugawa’s seventh son, later Shogun Yoshinobu Tokugawa)
Today’s shooting was a scene where I met Eiichi (Mr. Yoshizawa) and Kisaku (Mr. Takara) and hit the strong feelings I had, but it was a very nice scene where the energy of the two people was transmitted with a rush. I’m really excited that the taiga drama has begun. It’s fun to be able to play in this way, so I think we can deliver something warm to the viewers. ■ Shinichi Tsutsumi (Yoshinobu’s aide, Enshiro Hiraoka)
Up until now, shooting was done in the studio mainly at Edo Castle and Nagaya, but the location is still fresh! Enshiro is also the role that connects Eiichi / Kisaku and Yoshinobu, so this scene where the encounter is drawn is especially played. It was fun to be there. I think we can deliver a wonderful drama! I hope you can look forward to it until the start of the broadcast. (C) NHK
