Production Credits


  • One of the scenes had to be filmed along the streets of Kabukicho. This area is run by the Japanese yakuza. In order to film there, a contractor connected with the filming sent the yakuza 100,000 yen as payment for the use of filming in the area. The payment was placed in a envelope and left somewhere for the yakuza to pick up. Strange enough, the yakuza sent to NHK a receipt of payment, with a note written on the receipt, "For cooperation rendered with the filming." A day before the airing of the drama in Shukan Shincho, the local affiliate broadcast the following disclaimer: "It is true that the money was paid, and that a receipt was issued. But since it was subsequently determined that the issue of the receipt might be tied to a criminal syndicate - to which we are not permitted to pay money - that disbursement will not be carried on the books." The disclaimer went on to explain that the payment was not made by an NHK employee, and that it was considered a personal payment made by an individual and not a company expense. --groink
