HTB special drama “Betsuni Futsu no Koi” will be broadcast on December 14 (Sat) 1:55~3:20 pm (85 minutes locally in Hokkaido).


The Ferris wheel from Miyama Pass Art Park will also make an appearance!


Starting from 1995, one HTB special drama was produced, this year marked the 17th production.

In 2006, “Omugi machi de Tsukamaete” from Kamifurano was shown.


The production this time is in the center of Hokkaido, setting in the healing fields of “Biei”.

At the foot of Daisetsuzan with the grand nature as the backdrop, it’s written by the current best in Japan Maeda Shiro.

Perhaps it’s actually tiny, but for the person that’s concerned, it’s a very serious “Betsuni Futsu no Koi”.


What type of scene will the Ferris wheel from the Art Park appear… Everyone, please watch!

※Miyama Pass Art Park opened from December 1, 25th year of Heisei (2013) to March 31, 26th year of Heisei, until the winter season end.

【Shooting of the drama “Betsuni Futsu no Koi”】

The filming of the special drama “Betsuni Futsu no Koi” from HTB (Hokkaido Television) was located around the area of Woody Life from Miyama Pass.

With an impressive view of nature of Daisetsuzan mountain range at their back, “Even though it’s simple, for everyone that’s concerned, it’s a very serious “Futsu no Koi” showing a love drama. Though the setting is mainly in Biei, there are some scenes that were taken from the neighborhood.

The casts are Kaneko Taketoshi-san, Ando Sei-san, Kobayashi Kinako-san, Kitaro-san, Fujita Yumiko-san, and others. The script is by Maeda Shiro-san. It’s planned to be broadcast in December, with an 85 minutes running time. Please, be sure to watch.

[Notice] I will appear on December 14 (Sat) 13:55~15:20 HTB Special Drama “Betsuni Futsu no Koi”! The lead is played by Kaneko Taketoshi-san! I played Machiko, the best friend of Fukuda Mayuko-san’s Sachi. Though I don’t have a lot of lines, please watch! I’ll probably announce this several times!



- A very sloppy entry.

- Now we know the synopsis and Mayuko’s character’s name.

- Thanks to a lot of people that I got them from.

- Too lazy to link.

- Now, on to the second part!



  1. So, her name is Sachi and probably the main's little sister???

    And, out of topic but Yukishiro Tomoe was based on Ayanami Rei character from Evangelion. And since Mayuko was favoured by fans for both. I wonder if she has any chance though. She is at the proper age, too. No matter a few scenes Tomoe has, I want it Mayuko's.

    Takeru-san, please recommend her. You are her fan, aren't you???


  2. I think she's probably the main's little sister as well. XDD

    "Yukishiro Tomoe was based on Ayanami Rei character from Evangelion"
    I didn't know this. Wow... How I wish Mayuko is cast in this movie, but I really doubt it. They probably want a "pretty" looking actress or something. *sigh*

  3. yep, mangaka was a fan of Evangelion series and stated himself that Tomoe was based/inspired by Rei.

    I never finish Kenshin and since I read it maybe more than a decade ago, I couldn't remember the events in part 2 and 3 but some said that Tomoe may appear in part 3 only. So, they may still keep the actress's name in secret (or another secretly cast).

    Kaoru is a simple, straightforward girl but Tomoe's rather complex and if she just appear for some seconds up to a couple of minutes, they really need someone with impressive acting ability. I hope that they choose someone proper who is at her early 20 or a bit younger (Tomoe is 18 and Kenshin is about 16), mature (than Kenshin but not too old), lady-like, could act out her emotions/complexes dedicately.

    Tomoe has a huge fanbase so no matter how few scenes she has, I think it is nearly 100% that she will appear (she already in part 1, but only her back and Kenshin mentioned about his scars after all). But well, Kenshin is such a famous manga and the first part got huge success. They may want to promote a new actress or actress of bigger agencies will have the chance :<


    1. Yea, I don't think Mayuko has a chance as a cast in this. Amuse and Takei Emi's agency has plenty of people they want to promote... So I give up.

      Even if they were to cast someone from FLaMme, they will probably want Arimura Kasumi or something (she has been pushed a lot). Mayuko will probably be last in their list.
