Production Credits


Hirari is one of my favourite drama. This drama truly reflects the everyday life of the Japanese through the eyes of Hirari. And it is through this drama that I really get to understand what sumo is really about. I think this drama deserve at least a 3 stars (out of 5.)

Besides, it is because of this drama that Ishida Hikari gets to host the annual NHK Kouhaku Uta-Gassen. This shows the level of popularity and review this drama had. -- youri from Singapore 2000-12-30
