 The comedy movie Kudou Kankuro, one of the most famous writers in Japan, wrote being set in Kyoto is“Maiko Haaaan !!!”(2007)


「Maiko Haaaan!!!」
Blu-ray
 Onizuka, the leading role played by Abe Sadao, is a sidetracked employee of a food industry company in east Japan. He has dreamed of playing with some of Maiko, Japanese hostess girls, in Kyoto although not rich enough. Then day by day he repeated a role as a paparazzi chasing Maiko. One day, he got a notification of appointment to be transferred to Kyoto factory. Saying goodbye to his girl, he was delightfully transferred dreaming of playing with Maiko. And funny dramas go on in Kyoto.

 It is a movie that Abe for the first time played a leading role and the last movie that Ueki Hitoshi, the late great actor in Japan, appeared. Drawing over a million audiences and getting over two billions yen, the film was shown over USA in 2008. That means the movie was a great hit.

 Though it is a comedy, the film raises some questions about Kyoto. Kudo Kankuro, however, did not go to Kyoto for writing this story...

 Funny is love affair troubles caused by a couple consisted of Onizuka and his girl played by Shibasaki Kou. Can’t watch the film feeling fear about the love or the attachment of her. (^_^);/
By the way, Yumekawa-cho in the movie is a fictional place name. With watching the film, charms and questions of Kyoto will be conveyed to you.
