Hey, Tomoko Yamaguchi fans, which is the best (not necessarily your favorite) Tomoko Yamaguchi dorama series you have seen. For me, it's Ohsama no Resutoran (King's Restaurant) with Sweet Home a very close second.


I think she did her best work in Sweet Home. The main focus is about Tomoko (and her neighbors) trying to get their kids in the best school. You have some great support, especially for Kaneko Fukaura as her next door neighbor and Hiroshi Fuse as her husband, but the bulk of the work is done by Tomoko.

In Ohsama no Resutoran the storyline is about getting this once great restaurant back in shape. Plus you have a lot of great actors (Kyoka Suzuki and Takehiko Ono to name two) and for several of the episodes it focuses on different characters at the restaurant and Tomoko has very little to do. That being said, it was still a great drama, overall better than Sweet Home but not as big a role for Tomoko.

She caught my eye in Double Kitchen... It helped that they were broadcasting it locally, too. Victory! Peace!

Good show. Great comedy. Reflective of better economic times for the Japanese as compared to now. Sweat

But having said all that, if I were stuck on a desert island and could only have one Tomoko Yamaguchi drama it would still be Long Vacation.

The cast of 29th Christmas.

Tomoko's vest is very 90's. Classic.

Tomoko Yamaguchi to star in first drama in 16 years

It has been announced actress Yamaguchi Tomoko will come back to star in a new Fuji TVfs drama series as a wife of the lead role, Abe Hiroshi. This new drama is scheduled to air from October, every Tuesday at 10:00, but the title is not decided yet.

This will be Koreedafs third time to work with Abe; movie eAruitemo Aruitemoe(2008) and eKisekih (2011).

Yamaguchi commented about the script gWhen I read the script, I was like eInteresting! Want to see more as soon as possible!h Since I like a drama which full of dreams and hope, I am happy to join such a drama.h

I just hope the hype doesn't get so bad that no matter what they do people will be disappointed.

"Going My Home"

Geez oh, have I been out of the loop. You guys were talking about Tomoko coming back to TV in June, and here it is, September 22, and I just read the news for the first time.

Ah well, I would have gone nuts waiting for this show to start if I'd known about it in June.

Sucker's set to start on October 9. And they are giving it a two hour long first episode.

Okay, just polished off episode 3 of Kokoro ga Pokitto ne. It's just basically the four main actors, Yamaguchi, Abe, Naohito, and Mizuhara. In fact it's mentioned near the end of the episode that it could turn into a love square instead of a love triangle.

Anyway, Yamaguchi has pretty significant screen time so far which she didn't have in "Going My Home" and I'm beginning to wonder if that wasn't by design.

She hadn't acted in a drama in quite awhile and acting is hard work. Long hours, there's a lot more to it than what we see as the final product. I wonder if Yamaguchi deliberately took a smaller role in "Going My Home" just to see if she still wanted to do it. Kind of see if she still had the desire to act and put up with all the other stuff. Just an idea.

And so far, while I don't think "Kokoro ga Pokitto ne" will rank up there with "Sweet Home" or "Long Vacation" I've liked it.

She seems to be slowly but surely working her way back into dramas.
