Masha gave Ueno Juri (lead in nexy year's Taiga drama, Gou) Nagasaki tangerines which is a local specialty and she returned with wagyū (Omi beef), which was well-known due to the source of water came from Lake Biwa, in Shiga Prefecture. On Masha's gift (Nagasaki Mikan), which immediately reminded me of his grandmother.Thanks to Mashamasha for the translation as follows:-
Juri asked him what she should bring to NHK studio, masha said he always brings his training set to the studio but this is not necessary for Juri, so he suggested her to bring a good chair such that she can have good rest during the filming. Then masha said he has a good one, he will give her as present. masha did mention that chair in ann. He said he had a good sleep on that chair but felt pity that he found it so late (he found it when he filmed the cm right before the end of ryomaden filming)

From drama-otaku. A rather weird thing to say, enjoy hardships?
Lead actor of NHK’s taiga drama “Ryomaden,” Fukuyama Masaharu and next year’s lead actress of the taiga drama “Gou: Himetachi no Sengoku,” Ueno Juri were at a ceremonial “baton-passing” event in Tokyo’s Shibuya. Fukuyama exclaimed to his junior Ueno, “As an actor, as a human being, be grateful for being able to experience filming for over a year. Here, enjoy the hardships to your heart’s content.”
“Ryomaden” is coming to a close later this month. “Gou: Himetachi no Sengoku” starts airing next year in January.
