Episode 1 of NHK drama series Owakare Hospital, with soundtrack by Yasuaki Shimizu, airing 3 February (Sat) 10pm

Owakare Hospital portrays the "deaths and lives" of patients in the end-of-life stage of universal human experience, through the eyes of a nurse working on the terminal ward, and engages directly with the feelings of families, musings of patients, and limited nature of life. 

"It was wonderful to again work alongside the production team from 2018's Tomei na Yurikago (An Invisible Cradle). I too look forward to tuning in and seeing how my minute particles of sound, sound in this drama." (YS)
