Sayonara Kuchibiru Book

The current promotional campaign for Sayonara Kuchibiru/FarewellSong, the new film by director Akihiko Shiota is pretty intense: official and fan events, stickers, EP/CD, Commercials, teasers and trailers and… the official film book.

It’s a beautiful item and a must-have if you are a fan of any of the three main thespians. The 103 page paperback volume offers a neat balance of quality pictures of Nana Komatsu, Mugi Kadowaki and Ryou Narita. It is cleverly split into chapters: Photo Story I, II & III – Making – Recording and Last Live Tour.

All the shots were taken on the film’s different locations: Osaka, Hamamatsu, Yokkaichi, Niigata, Hirosaki, Sakata and Hakodate. Photographer: Kotori Kawashima. You can buy this collectable book from Amazon Japan or CD Japan, both stores have English pages for non Japanese speakers.
