Storyline

A hard working salaryman takes off five days from his busy job and sets off with his wife and two children to visit his parents in his hometown for the 1991 new year holidays. He decides that they will go by car to save on expenses. Unfortunately, the long drive from Tokyo to his hometown becomes a much longer journey than expected due to traffic, sickness and other misfortunes and by the time they arrive three days later, they only have time for a short but happy visit. Written by Kevin Risch <krisch@intranet.on.ca>

Humorous yet heartfelt look at family vacations
1 February 1999 | by (Davenport, Iowa USA) – See all my reviews

This was an enjoyable film on several levels. First, imagine one of the countless National Lampoon Vacation movies, but set in Japan and played less broadly and more realistically. Anyone who's shared the myriad experiences of a road trip with the family will laugh and cringe (probably at the same time)at the family's misfortunes (a traffic accident with a truckload of pigs, sleeping in the car due to a lack of a hotel, running out of gas, money and patience all at the worst possible time). However, for all the misfortunes the family endures during the trip to Hagiwara san's home in Shikoku, the key to this movie's success for me was the relationships between husband and wife, parents and children, and father and returning son. Very funny movie but also touching too. Highly recommended.
