Re: It's Suntory Time!

I'm big fan of Keanu so I'm just going through in another a-bit-of-a-stretch tie in. There used to be a Japanese restaurant inside the San Francisco Japantown Mall called Fuku Sushi and in their display case was an autographed signture from Keanu during one of his visits. So certainly not having to ...

It's Suntory Time!

Although not directly relating to the LiT movie, there are certainly enough tie-in’s in this article: https://robbreport.com/food-drink/spirits/house-of-suntory-yamazaki-hakushu-keanu-reeves-sophia-coppola-1234847426/ Suntory, Sophia….I think that’s more than enough of a tie-in!

Re: Play It Again Sam...er um...I mean Charlotte!!!

Like any experience, be it a place, a song, a person, a food, etc., nothing will ever beat that first time. But to be honest, it’s been so many years, I can’t barely remember what it was like the first time I watched LiT :(

...a minor appearance, but an appearance nonetheless

In the current issue of Conde Naste magazine, a minor mention of LiT (as part of an article on design in Japan). Granted the photo is not of the Park Hyatt, but another hotel

Thanks Bob_san for keeping up this site. It's both a sanctuary and a time machine. Wow, 20 year anniversary coming up? Definitely hope we can do something here, like I think in the past many years ago you guys had group viewing parties or something like that online?

Yeah, I just checked recently and it has been taking down along with all the other Insomniac episodes that that user put up. I actually downloaded it to my laptop as soon as I saw it go up months ago. Now, if I can only find some other (non-youtube) platform to upload it for you all.... But boy do I...

Re: Play It Again Sam...er um...I mean Charlotte!!!

Welcome Back! In looking over my history here, I see that I actually disovered/joined this group in 2016, so many, many years after the movie came out. And though I never lived in Japan and never travelled there until 2016 (hence joining this group), my history with the movie goes way back to when i...

Re: Park Hyatt Room Number?

Hopefully you can also visit the other places in the movie too. I know there are a bunch other old threads on this site with people documenting their own pilgrimages and visiting all the filming locations but I never get tired of seeing such posts. I know the film is now 20 years old so probably som...

All the best to you and your journey to live out your Lost In Translation experience!! I made my pilgrimage in 2016, took a small group tour that started and ended in Tokyo, after that my wife and stayed 4 nights at the Park Hyatt. Though it was just one of the regular rooms, to have watched the mov...

Insomniac Episode: "Sloshed In Translation"

こんにちは みんな様!  I've previously shared somewhere within these forums what a fan I am of an old early 2000's show called "Insomniac with Dave Attel" hosted by comedian Dave Attell (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insomniac_with_Dave_Attell). Each episode features him visiting a different city at night and...

You're in luck....because just as there is this specials forum, this special place, for us LiT fans, you can be sure there are forums/places for watch enthusiasts.

Re: Just Like Honey | Coachella 2007

Nice! Love this song, never heard of it nor the band prior to this movie though. In particular, love the way they used it in the movie. The ending could have ended with something kind of melancholy, dramatic, such as an sad orchestral theme, due to the bitter sweet parting of the characters, but ins...

Re: Sushi place in Daikanyama closed.

The first and only time I went to Tokyo (in 2016), I didn't attempt to go to all the places seen in the movie. My only claim to fame was being able to stay at the Park Hyatt....where of course, most of the movie was set. I did have a picture taken of me stepping out of the elevator, after the same s...

I feel like I’m walking through the ruins of an old city of “my people”, and here stands a partially built cathedral. It is wonderful to see, but also a bit upsetting that the city has ceased.
sounds like it's time to rebuild! :D
