Tatsuya - News

Tatsuya at 'Welcome Home Hayabusa' exhibition opening says "Children! Do your best!"

On the 22nd, an exhibition showcasing a number of props and interesting items held its opening ceremony. Tatsuya cut the ribbon to the event.

Tatsuya, who plays the role of the assitant engineer of JAXA in the upcoming movie; "I hope families will watch and enjoy this movie. It shows that having dreams can make you interested in many things, and I hope that children watching will see that persistance is important. In their own way JAXA showed the world the power of Japanese technology, I hope it energises people", Tatsuya said with a bright expression.

The film's Director, Katsuhide Motoki said, "JAXA's directors are really humble and modest about it, but I think there is pride and honor in what they did. From such a small crew and little funding they created the future of Japan's technology, this is the message I wanted to project."

Welcome Home Hayabusa is showing throughout the country in 3D and 2D.

Fujiwara Tatsuya makes surprise appearance at a junior high school

On February 28th, actor Fujiwara Tatsuya made a surprise appearance at a junior high school for his upcoming film, "Okaeri, Hayabusa".

Fujiwara gave advice to 132 students, who will soon be graduating from junior high school. He said, "Love a lot and meet many people. I will be delighted if everyone’s powers will bring energy to Japan."

He continued, "In life, you don’t know where your chances may be. For me, what changed my life was encountering people. I understand there will be difficult times from here on, but I want everyone to not give up, and take the next step."

Fujiwara also shared that it’s been a long time since he last visited a school. "There’s a strong sense of nostalgia, so I’m excited," he said and joked, "I didn’t realize school was this cold." Fujiwara then reflected on the days when he was 15-years-old, "During that time, I only played soccer, so I only went to school to eat school lunch."

"Okaeri, Hayabusa" is an adventure story about an unmanned spacecraft named ‘Hayabusa’, which miraculously returned to Earth after being away for 7 years. Fujiwara introduced the film saying, "If it weren’t for this film, I wouldn’t have known the hardships of the people of JAXA. Although they were close to despair, they were instantaneously able to catch their small piece of hope when they saw the miraculous return. I want everyone to experience this miraculous story in 3D."

New gallery NOW ONLINE!

I have just finished making the new gallery section online! To celebrate this, and the fact I recently (cough, a few months ago, cough) converted the Media section over too - I have also jazzed up the site in general (you'll probably notice it's a little more colourful that it used to be).

The new format means you can once again scan through the many thumbnails within the albums and save individual files if you'd like. I will start to offer (once I've scanned some of the backlog) downloadable .zip files of the whole albums perhaps for the forum/livejournal users if you'd like me to?

It also means that the albums are (hopefully) easier to find - as they are now all sorted by title alphabetically! From my POV it makes things 100 times faster to update so hopefully I will be adding pretty and new pictures more frequently from now on.

Many many thanks to my sister Cate (of Merong.co.uk) for helping me with the php code!! She requests virtual shiney things as offerings of your thanks~
