Viewers' desired spot
Published on June 13 in Rakuten WOMAN magazine the editors of "Location Japan" introduced "The ultimate romantic dating spot". "Location Japan" is a magazine which gives information about the shooting locations and attractions from various Japanese movies, dramas, etc.
Out of all television drama location spots, the spot that is recommended as the one that will make your man want to propose is "Ebisu Garden Place" located in the Shinjuku area of Tokyo. This spot was featured in the 2005 TBS drama "Hana yori Dango" (Season 1).
"Ebisu Garden Place"'s Clock Tower Square was the meeting place for the first date of rich-boy and heir Doumyoji Tsukasa, played by Arashi's Matsumoto Jun, and poor high school student Makino Tsukushi, played by Inoue Mao. The picture of a soaked to the skin Doumyoji Tsukasa while waiting in the rain for Tsukushi was an impressive scene which left an impression on viewers.
"Ebisu Garden Place" was originally the location of the Ebisu Beer factory and is lined with brick buildings, remnants from when it was a factory. Surrounded by a retro brasserie (bar-restaurant), theatre, hotel and restaurants with a beautiful night view, it is a popular date spot.
