What is CM of OOITAMUGISHOUCHU NIKAIDOU

"TV Commercial of OOITAMUGISHOCHU NIKAIDOU".
It's true that it is only a TV Commercial. However, it has very high artistic quality. It's almost "art work". It has very nostalgic story in the 30 seconds, and after watching it, we find ourselves weeping in the nostalgie. Its scenery is very beautiful, full of nature, retro, and after watching it, we find ourselves getting very sentimental.

It may be difficult to introduce the greatness to foreign people, because its scenery are all Japanese and nostalgie from them may have peculiarly Japanese nostalgie. However, I do want to introduce it. (Sorry, very bad English...)

The Commercials of OOITAMUGISHOCHU NIKAIDOU are made by DAIKO Co.Ltd in Fukuoka City, since 1987. (One commercial in a year. New CMs are usually made in October or November.) Here are the translation of their Japanese voices.

As of March 2010, we can usually watch the CM in Monday 8 p.m. in Nippon Television(NTV), "Sekai Marumie Terebi Tokusoubu".

(Sorry, because of copyright, there's no video or image of the commercial in this site.)

By the way, what should Fan Club members do? --- "To introduce the greatness of the commercial of OOITAMUGISHOCHU NIKAIDOU". That's all! Of course free of charge. If you want to join us, please

Lineup of CMs since 1987

Shooting Places of the CM are almost in Kyushu Island in Japan. It is maybe because the maker of CM, Daiko Advertising Inc. is located in Kyushu.
It's very difficult for me to translate Japanese poem into English. Frequently I'm going to add, alter and tinker with the contents. If you find something bad or to be corrected, please
e-mail me.

夢に気づいたのは、メトロノームが止まった瞬間。
錆びた線路は、あの日に続いているだろうか...。
麦100%。大分むぎ焼酎、二階堂。
Yureteiru chiisana kageha, mouhitorino watashida.
Yumeni kiduitanoha, metorono-mu ga tomatta shunkan.
Sabita senroha, anohi ni tuduiteirudarouka...
Mugi 100%. Ooitamugishouchu, Nikaidou.
The swaying shadow is another I.
It was when I noticed it was a dream that the metronome halted.
I wonder whether the rusty railroad leads to the day...
Barley 100%. Ooita's barley distilled spirit, Nikaidou.
