Asa ga Kita
あさが来た

The NHK TV series Asa ga Kita reached its final episode today.
今日、NHK連続テレビ小説『あさが来た』が最終回を迎えた。

Since I came in in the middle, it seems like no time, but I thank those viewers who watched from beginning to end.
僕は途中からの参加だったのであっという間に感じてしまったが、まず最後までご覧いただいた視聴者の皆さん、本当にありがとうございました。

And to all the costars and staff, my sincere appreciation for your hard work.
そして共演者の皆さん、スタッフ・関係者の皆さん、本当にお疲れ様でした。

One of the themes of the show was the "chance encounter", and for me, as an individual, Asa ga Kita presented wonderful chance encounters.
劇中の中で"出逢い"がテーマの1つになっていましたが、『あさが来た』は僕個人にとっても素敵な出逢いを届けてくれました。

One encounter is with the character I played, Narisawa Izumi.
僕が演じた、成澤泉との出逢いです。




Narisawa, an impetuous man whose strong feelings led him to leap into action without thinking.
想いの強さから後先考えず、すぐに行動に移す危なっかしい男、成澤。

It was really nice to play him.
演じられて本当に良かった。

I had the opportunity to reflect on my too careful, hesitant to act, and half-hearted personality, because this person who founded Japan's first women's college despite it being thought impossible back then, taught me that dreams and goals will surely come true if I whole-heartedly believe in them.
慎重すぎ、考えすぎてなかなか行動を起こせない消極的な僕の性格を見つめ直す機会を与えてくれ、当時実現不可能と考えられていた女子の大学校を日本で初めて作った人ですから、夢や目標は自分の想いを信じ諦めずに進んでいれば必ず叶うということを教えてくれた人物でした。

"No matter how dark the night, we can advance with the faith that the sun will rise on a new morning."
「どんなに暗い夜でも、信じて進めば必ず陽は昇り新しい朝がくる。」

I loved these words.
この言葉、大好きでした。

Narisawa learned this expression from Asa, but saying it gives me a push.
成澤があさから教わった言葉なのですが、自分で言っててかなり背中を押されました。

Also, I learnt that humans cannot live alone.
そして、人間は1人では生きていけないということ。

No matter how lonely you are, even people who think they are living by themselves are living with the support and cooperation of several people.
どんなに孤独で、1人で生きていると思っている人でも様々な人の支えや協力で生きています。

I feel that it was also a film that made people be upfront with their feelings.
そんな周りの人たちに素直になれる作品でもあった気がします。




And, it’s on something that everyone would experience, life and death…
それから誰もが経験する生と死について...

Narisawa said something like this to Shinjiro.
成澤が新次郎に言った言葉でこんなものがあります。

“For me, there is not much difference between life and death. If there is life, there would be death and vice versa. As the both of them always follow a rhythm, it flows through our daily lives. And our bodies, is just like our clothes, our real self exists inside our body. And that does not perish forever.”
「私にとって、生と死というものはあまり違いはないのです。生があるから死があり、死があるから生がある。この2つは常に1つのリズムとして、我々の日常を流れています。そして、この身体はただの衣服であり、本当の身体はもっと奥にある。そしてそれは、永久に滅びません。」

I think there are various ways to interpret this, but I treat these words as a warm energy that cleared my mind and saved me.
いろいろな解釈の仕方があると思いますが、僕はこの言葉から救われたような、どこかスッキリしたような温かいエネルギーを感じました。

Not only Narisawa’s lines, there were a lot of encounters on nice phrases that appeared in “Asa ga Kita”.
成澤の言葉だけでなく『あさが来た』では沢山の素敵な言葉とも出逢いました。

From now on, there will also be a variety of encounters…
これからも様々な出逢いがあるでしょう...

Treating each one of them importantly, at my last moments, I would like to send my life while saying “I’m totally satisfied”.
1つ1つを大切に、最期は「総て満足だ」と終われる人生を送りたい。
