The two set out for an outing in the Nissan Dayz, with Mr. Ichikawa driving. During the drive, you can have a variety of conversations inside the car, from the reassuring Nissan ProPILOT technology that makes going out even more enjoyable to what the two of you have been into lately. Then, we arrived at a “tufting experience” where you could make your own original rug. Mr. Matsu and Mr. Ichikawa sometimes look serious while enjoying the tufting experience to the fullest. Mr. Ichikawa enjoyed driving to his fullest on the way home, but thanks to the “ProPilot,” he seemed to be able to relax. We will look back on the fun outings we had on Nissan Days and discuss our memories from today.

Shooting episode
Takako Matsu and Mikiko Ichikawa reunited for the first time in a long while for this photo shoot. The two seemed to be laughing with each other throughout the shoot, and it was impressive that they got along so well that it didn’t feel like it had been a while. During the filming of the scene in which Mr. Matsu appears at the meeting place in a Nissan Sakura, Mr. Ichikawa and the staff spontaneously burst into applause as Mr. Matsu suddenly stops at the shooting location, saying, “Wow!”. There was also a heart-warming scene where the two of them spoke to Ladybug, who suddenly landed on the Nissan Sakura, saying, “Do you want to ride in the new Dayz, too?” Before the outing in the Nissan Days, Mr. Ichikawa seemed a little nervous about driving, but once he returned from the drive, he was impressed not only by the ProPilot but also by the wonderful Matsu-san’s assistance. It’s all thanks to you!” he said with a smile as he seemed to enjoy driving. And in the sea scene, Ichikawa tried parking. Mr. Ichikawa was a little nervous at first, but using the Intelligent Around View Monitor of the Nissan DAYS, which allows him to see the surroundings of his car from a perspective similar to seeing it from the sky, he parked his car perfectly in the parking spot. Mr. Ichikawa looked relieved, and the scene was filled with applause. During the tufting shoot that followed, the two of them seemed to be having fun, as if they were enjoying a private outing, and the scene remained calm throughout, so we were able to finish the shoot without incident.

I want to walk around various places.
Mr. Ichikawa: It certainly depends on the season, even in the same garden. Matsu-san: Because the scenery changes. I’m looking forward to that for a bit.
