Shooting site

I looked back on the drama special "Ishinomori Shotaro Monogatari" that was aired on Nippon Television's 24-hour TV around 21:00 on Saturday, August 25.

Filming was done at various locations, mainly at Ikuta Studio. This time, I will introduce some of the places where the photos were taken.


Scene: Ishimori Station platform (April 1956)

Place: Chichibu Railway Busu Hino Station

A scene where Shotaro departs from Ishimori Station by his sister to go to Tokyo. Although it was the April scene, it was shot in the end of July, so it was a very hot shoot.


Scene: Ishimori Town Bookstore

Place: Fujiyoshida City, Yamanashi Prefecture

A bookstore where my mother's kashik appears when his father Kotaro browses Shotaro's books. Kotaro cry, “Keep as much as you can” in Kashik.


Scene: Ueno Park Shotaro Ishinomori and Fujio Akatsuka's first meeting

Place: Ueno Park

A scene where Shotaro Ishinomori and Fujio Akatsuka meet each other with their caricatures. Shooting started from this scene. The performance of the two was so natural that I didn't think they were filmed first.


Scene: Chinese restaurant / Matsuba

Place: Minami-Nagasaki, Toshima-ku

I was worried about Shotaro, and it was a scene where Yonee sister talked with Fujio Akatsuka. I borrowed the pine needles that the teachers actually attended and photographed them.


Scene: Tokiwa-so entrance

Place: Open set outside Ikuta Studio

A scene where Hirofuji Fujimoto has passed away from Yue Sister to three people, Shotaro Ishimori, Fujio Akatsuka, and Eiko Mizuno. At this place, we also shot a scene of fireworks with everyone at Tokiwa-so.


Scene: Kamen Rider shooting scene

Place: Yamashita Town, Naka Ward, Yokohama City

A scene where Shotaro Ishinomori takes two children to the shooting scene of Kamen Rider. It was really hot, so I think the performers were really hard. I took a photo of the shocker gloves and belt worn by Toshiaki Karasawa.


Scene: Tokiwa-so

Place: Open set in Ikuta Studio

In this shooting, quite a lot of scenes were shot with the set in Ikuta Studio. It seems that Mr. Eiko Mizuno was surprised and the Tokiwa-so at that time was reproduced. From the beginning to the second half of the filming, the room gradually increased.

Scene: Hospital

Place: Open set in Ikuta Studio

Scene where Dr. Shotaro asks her sister Yue about the medical condition. Mr. Fumio Umezawa, the teacher, made a friendship appearance just for this scene.

Scene: Shotaro's reception room

Place: Open set in Ikuta Studio

Shotaro discusses the design of Kamen Rider with two editors. I was really impressed with the attention to detail of everyone at NTV.

Scene: Shotaro Ishinomori birthplace

Place: Open set in Ikuta Studio

A scene in which my father calls Shotaro and Sister Yue and yells. The performance of Mr. Tetsuta Sugimoto, father Kotaro, was so powerful that his voice reverberated in the studio.

Scene: Shotaro's new workplace

Place: Open set in Ikuta Studio

A scene where Shotaro, who has returned from overseas travel, creates Cyborg 009. Fine art researched me and prepared something that looked exactly like the curtain pattern I used in the actual workplace of Ishinomori-sensei.

I looked back on "100 minutes de Shotaro Ishinomori" which was televised on NHK E-tele on Saturday, September 8, 2018 from 23:00.

This time, we will introduce the photographed set.

It was recorded for two days at the special set of Meguro Gajoen in late July.
