This afternoon I came back from Hiroshima to Tokyo. It was just a few days after that President Obama visited Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park.
Yesterday I filmed a professor of Hiroshima University in the park, where after the president visit number of visitors doubled.
Two weeks ago I asked a permission to film in the park to the city office and their advice was that I should ask a support from Hiroshima Film Commission(HFC) because they could help paper works and the charge for using a part of the park would be free.
It was a simple message video filming, however I followed their advice.
Thanks to HFC, I had no problems during the shooting yesterday although there were a lot of people in the park and actually the charge was free.
