J-WAVE SPARK LIVE Vol. 5 to Feature Sayaka Yamamoto and SHE’S
04.November.2021 | MUSIC
Japanese FM radio station J-WAVE (81.3 FM) has announced its fifth live event coming to Zepp DiverCity in Tokyo. The station’s popular late-night program SPARK takes place from Monday to Thursday at 24:00-25:00 each week and is the inspiration for these incredible performances. This time, Sayaka Yamamoto and SHE’S will both be taking the stage on December 9, 2021.
Sayaka Yamamoto serves as SPARK’s MC each Monday. Piano-rock band SHE’S collaborated with the singer on her song oasis released in February, with vocalist and keyboard player Ryouma Inoue producing the track and SHE’S arranging and performing the music.
I’ve worked with SHE’S musically in the past, and I’m so excited to work with them again like this. It will also be the first time for me to perform against an entire band alone, so I’m also super nervous. I’ll do my best to put on a great show!
After arranging and producing the song oasis for Yamamoto, she invited us to see her solo concert. I remember getting goosebumps because she had evolved so much, and she was so incredibly cool. I can’t wait to see what kind of live show this will turn out to be, and I hope we can sing something together!

Dog Star: Kimi to Miageru Fuyu no Seiza-tachi Trailer #2
Advance Ticket Bonus: Acrylic Stand
Keina Suda, chosen to perform the theme song for Dog Star: Kimi to Miageru Fuyu no Seiza-tachi
Konica Minolta Planetarium Manten NAGOYA will be Japan’s first planetarium to use the LED dome system DYNAVISION-LED, which utilizes self-luminous LED elements instead of a projector.
Before making his major debut, Keina Suda was a popular Vocaloid producer going by the name Balloon. During this period, his song Charles became a smash hit, getting over 100 million views on YouTube. The musician wrote the song Yomosugara for the film. The writer of the film, Mari Okada, is also known for her work on Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day and The Anthem of the Heart.
A completely original story written by Mari Okada
A friendship between two boys begins to twinkle in the light of the winter constellations.
Nobunaga Shimazaki plays Kousuke, a boy who is crazy about the stars, while Yama Uchida portrays Natsuki, active on the track and field team. This is a coming-of-age story woven together with the starry sky made of LED lights only available at Manten NAGOYA.
Kousuke, a boy who loves stars, failed his high school entrance exam. He reluctantly enrolls at his second-choice school, where he meets Natsuki, a member of the track and field team. He compares the brilliance of Natsuki to that of Sirius, the first magnitude star that shines with a fierce intensity. Kousuke thinks Natsuki is not the same as him, who is only the second magnitude star with little presence. However, the fate of the two twinkling stars is about to change drastically…

Planetariums in Tokyo to Show Night Flower Film Narrated by Taishi Nakagawa
A stunning new film is coming to the Konica Minolta Planetarium in Tokyo Skytree Town and Planetaria Tokyo in Yurakucho Mullion starting November 19, 2021! Night Flower ~Blooming for One Night on a Starry Island~ will take guests on a journey to Iriomote Island in Okinawa, known for its beautiful starry sky. At night, this island is home to Sagaribana, a flower that only blooms at night and seems to glow in brilliant shades of white, pink, or red. The film is narrated by actor and model Taishi Nakagawa.
Journey to an Immersive Starry Island
Iriomote Island, a world heritage site, is filled with rich nature and a vast ecosystem of living things. From this island, 84 of the 88 constellations scattered across the sky can be seen, including the Crux. A number of these constellations have been captured in this film, with plenty of detail given by Taishi Nakagawa. It almost feels like a date with him–and who could resist that?
Feel as Though You’ve Been Transported to the Jungle
Using the SOUND DOME® stereoscopic sound system, even the tiniest sound of a bird chirping or leaves rustling will feel as close as can be. Along with the narrator, Manami Kakudo provides the theme song to the film which will leave audiences with goosebumps.
Mysterious Flowers Blooming Beneath a Starry Sky
The Sagaribana is a whimsical flower, almost alien in its appearance. They bloom for only one night, closing up by morning. This can teach us a valuable lesson: that each day, and each night, is precious, and life can be more fragile than we realize.
Night Flower ~Blooming for One Night on a Starry Island~
Release Period: November 19, 2021 ~
Runtime: About 40 minutes
Address: Planetaria Tokyo (Yurakucho Mullion) / Konica Minolta Planetarium (Tokyo Skytree Town)
*Screening times will vary depending on the day and time of year.
