Storyline

Chagawa finds it increasing difficult to support his young ward Junnosuke in his store across the street from the Suzuki garage on Third Street. Unless he can provide a better life, Junnosuke's rich father, Kawabata will take him away. Chagawa focuses once again on winning the "Akutagawa-sho" literary award and the prize money coming with it. Mika, a 7-year old relative of the Suzukis is left to stay with them when her father has business reverses. She is accustomed to a richer life style and at first her behavior is very spoiled but is humbled when sees the menial chores that her same-aged cousin Ippei performs. Mutsuko continues to work in the family as a mechanic but has an aspiring boyfriend Takeo, who is studying cooking. Chagawa seeks to find Hiromi, who has become successful once more as the exotic dancer "Betty." Written by Brian Greenhalgh

This Could Be A Franchise
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a sequel to the brilliant first film, set in the shadow of the Tokyo Tower. Its now 1959, four months later, and we're still with the same characters. The Tower is now finished. You still have the over the top Suzuki-San, you have Chagawa, who still pines for Hiromi, continues to struggle as a writer and still faces uncertainty as to keeping Junnosuke with him. In this film, the pretty Roku gets a boyfriend, and the Suzuki family takes in a young girl who is a cousin. She is at first very tentative but soon becomes part of the family. Like in the first film, things happen which make you laugh and cry. The laughs are even more frequent, and include a visit from Godzilla! The difference in this film is that the characters like each other more, which is just a great thing. This film, like the first, is just excellent, a feel good film that, though sentimental, is never overbearing. I love these characters. I would guess movie number three is in the works, as there is so much more for these characters to say and experience. You need to watch the first installment before you see this, but its such a treat to see both. Both films have my highest recommendation. They are both excellent.
