    I found this today, it's the sad music played before Unmei no deai in "Bara no Shozo" documentary.

    I know they used the random foreign mansion for one of their photoshoots.
    Like, the Japanese built a random foreignish mansion in or near Tokyo for um....purposes...
    Or was that a different photoshoot?

    This showed up on Tumblr, not sure if it's been posted here before. No idea where this is at, probably in the Tokyo area. Anyone know?

    Thought I would update since I was browsing here. Found this thanks to Flowers of Night and google. Aoyama Cemetery, plot for the family of Robert Walker Irvin.

    I went to Weathercock House yesterday and can confirm that only the exterior was used for the 月下の夜想曲 music video.

    I had been hiking around the Kobe mountains during the day and I arrived a short time before the house closed. So at the time I was feeling rather exhausted, but I did manage to get a few photos of the interior and some video (which I might post later if it looks alright and if I get a chance to edit it all together).

    I was surprised at how much of a tourist destination the house is! There was quite a crowd (especially given the time of day)!

    Admission was also ¥500, or ¥650 for entrance to Weathercock House and the nearby Green House. Usually I don't like cities, but this area of Kobe is rather nice and I hope to re-visit it sometime soon in the future to really explore it!

    Thank you! It was a bit difficult to get photos will all the other people wandering around the house.

    I should also mention that half of the second floor was converted over into a gift/souvenir shop and a small rest area, I didn't care to photograph this.

    Love the photos... but yeah, perhaps not run-down enough to use the interior for the PV XD

    It's too bad most of these "Malice Mizer locations" are too far-flung to make a tour out of them all. Even if you leave the European locations out of it ::meev::

    Yeah... I was playing the MV on my phone and checking all of the locations and I could not find anything that matched, I couldn't see any configuration of room shape, windows, curtains or wallpaper that was resembled the video.

    The house is also considered an important cultural property too, so I doubt they would have had permission to stomp around for filming.

    I may or may not be visiting another location soon, pending the weather (which doesn't look good right now) and my mood.

    Yeah.

    I'm heading up to Tokyo for the rendezvous this weekend, I thought I might as well take the opportunity to so. Though Sunday is forecast as cloudy and I would have to take Monday off travel home via Shinkansen/rest.

    Butterfly Kami posted the two Kami photos on Tumblr today. And I noticed something. The first photo is a younger Kami in 1995, the second is later in his life, maybe around the time of Bel Air or later. Not just how his body and face look, but his hair style changed. So it seems that Malice Mizer used LA TABLE de Joël Robuchon in Ebisu as a backdrop more than once over the years. The last photo is mine from when I figured out where the Malice Mizer photos for this previously posted flyer were taken.

    Does anyone know in what part of France this is? I tried to look it up from what it says but I had no luck.
    this place might as well not even exist anymore
