They gave out this postcard souvenir from last night’s Asian premiere of Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno at Cinema 9 of SM Megamall. I thought its only a post card souvenir but then I later found out this morning that there’s an info at the back that promotes the city of Kumamoto in Japan. It’s the city where they film for the entire movie.
There’s the market, the theater and site where Shishio hangs out with his henchmen. The buildings in Kumamoto were built during the Meiji Era. The same era when Kenshin roams the city.
The post card souvenir serves also to invite us to visit Kumamoto city, so if you are planning to have a trip in Japan, then try book a trip to Kumamoto and enjoy the scenery, relive the movie action scenes and also eat some food that is named after Kenshin.
Shimata! they also promoted those tomatoes that Sanosuke ate during the movie hahaha.
The first sequel, “Rurouni Kenshin: Kyoto Inferno” will open across the Philippines on Aug. 20, 2014, to be followed by “Rurouni Kenshin: The Legend Ends” on Sept. 24, 2014. Both films are distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
