Takki Tidbits

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again…. This man is crazy!!! *lol*

Completely out of the blue, our beloved Tono accepted an offer from TBS to star in their documentary (as part of their special series called “Television Future Heritages”) where he was to go on a “close-up investigation” of a lava lake to find out how and why such a phenomenon exists. This whole thing occurred at the beginning of June, within the Marum volcano of the Republic of Vanuatu (northeast of Australia). But what’s more impressive is that Takki is the first Japanese person to ever step foot inside the mouth of this volcano!

Takki was there for 10 days but of course, he wasn’t there alone. In addition to the camera crew, he was also with a team of experts and specialists. Takki also took a rappelling course in Japan before he went on this location shoot. The lava lake was 400 meters down from the mouth of the volcano, but it took them a while to execute this mission due to bad weather conditions (such as heavy fog, rain and volcanic gases). During this time, they had to wait and live in tents on the summit of the Marum volcano.

When conditions were finally good enough to enter the volcano, Takki went in wearing a gas mask (and of course, he was equipped with a camera) as he was carefully rappelled down into the volcano. For safety reasons, he was only allowed to go down 100~200 meters, but even from there, he was quite in awe as he explained his impression of the lava lake: “I couldn’t even put it into words. It made an impact on me. Being roped down into this (whole different) world, I could feel the heat and hear the powerful sound of the boiling magma… In a way, it was as though I was at the entrance of Hell. At the same time, I was so moved by the experience that I felt like I wanted to stay there forever.”

The documentary is called「奇跡の絶景ミステリー 地球46億年!大自然の神秘はこう創られた」(“Miraculous Scenic Mystery, Earth at 4.6 Billion Years! How Mother Nature’s Mysteries Are Produced”) and will be aired on 17 July at 9pm on TBS.
