A very hard job.
Hours and hours of hard work.....
I joined other foreigners at Sapporo Beer Garden for the filming of a beer drinking and singing scene for a TV show!
That's me on stage in rehearsal with my microphone group - in the filming we were holding beer and singing "Biru no Machi Sapporo!".
All of this with Mayor Ueda and the song's composer, folk singer Yasuyo Yamaki! The audience were local bar owners and Yamaki-san's fan club members? I'm not sure - lots of nice polite ladies!
The TV show is called "笑顔になれる街 札幌”
and will be on BS Fuji on May 17th at 3 pm.
Mayor Ueda has a good voice!! I was surprised.
This job was a little strange - we were not paid for appearing, but we could drink our beer after filming and then enjoyed free lamb BBQ :-)
