Production Credits[edit]


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
