Hello to all from a gray but unseasonably warm Wisconsin,
Can anyone steer me in the right direction for lighting rental - probably Kino-Flo's of some sort - near Tokyo? We are shooting some interviews and B-roll in Makuhari New City - I can't tell if it's a "new city" or part of the cities name is, "New City" - supposedly it is 30 minutes from Tokyo and Narita Airport. In an ideal world I could find a gaffer or very competant grip that also spoke descent English to meet us with gear and work for a couple of days. Before I go firing off emails or attempt to make phone calls I wanted to query the "brain trust" of CMLer's. Any insight or recomendations are appreciated.

Hi,

It's a new city, in that it's a gigantic business/convention complex on reclaimed land almost directly between Narita Airport and Tokyo (so, if you are staying in Tokyo, you will travel beyond it to get to your hotel - but there's a ton of accomodation in the area.)
