– The Music video for Hanataba has been broadcasted on Japanese TV a few days ago.
Mika-chan’s thoughts on the video:

« In a super cold rain, it was so hard to film scenes of running barefoot and falling down on the ground, but I’m really happy that the worldview of the lyrics was sufficiently depicted and the video turned out to be a very beautiful piece. »

The video was filmed at the base of Mt. Fuji by Tadokoro Takashi who directed other Mika videos such as LEGEND, Seppun, My Sugar Cat, Ashita Sekai ga Owarunara, Hatsukoi, Sakura~hanagasumi, GAME and was in charge of Art direction of the short movie project of SAMSARA.

Mika-chan will release her brand new single « Hanataba » on October 28th. The title track was written and composed by Tamaki Koji, and is described as a heartwarming ballad song that will change the hesitation and pain you have to face every day into joy and gratitude.

« Hanataba » will also be used as the theme and insert song for Fuji TV’s drama Otona Joshi to be premiered on October 15th.

Mika-chan commented, « my latest single, Hanataba was decided to release on October 28th. The song was newly written by Tamaki Koji-san. In hard times, when you are likely to feel discouraged, holding an « unchanging welcoming » hand which leads you to make the next step, and the one after that…I think that this gentleness was nicely transcribed in the song. And we have also determined that the song would be the theme song of the drama « Otona Joshi ». I’ll be glad if you could listen to it and enjoy along with the drama. »

Actress Shinohara Ryoko, who is the lead of the drama, also commented on the song: « With Nakashima-san singing to Tamaki-san’s song, I thought it would be a wonderful fit. I am already looking forward to how this mature ballad will add grace to the drama. »

The b-side of the single will be previously released song, « Ai no Uta », which was an insert song for TBS’ drama « Omotesando Koukou Gasshoubu! ». It was written and composed by Maekawa Shingo of Kariyushi58.
