Storyline

Sakura, a fourth-generation Japanese American, has just finished college and is trying to decide what to do with her life. After considering going with her boyfriend, Robbie, to his job in New York, she decides to spend a year in Japan to try and rediscover her roots. Accepting a job as a teacher in a rural, all-boys middle school, she packs up and leaves America. She experiences a bit of a shock, however, when she discovers that the real Japan and the Japan of her imagination are not quite the same thing. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

What a great show!
11 May 2005 | by mpattiniSee all my reviews

Yea, it's corny and sometimes a little ridiculous! However, Sakura has a certain charm that you just can't find anywhere else. It aired in California last year and is currently airing in New York. It's on Channel 25 every Sunday at 11:00pm. Try to catch it if you live around NYC! You'll get a kick out of it! Towards the end of the program, you get to see a clip or two on random Japanese topics. Some of them, such as the clip on robotics, are really amazing! In fact, the entire show seems to try to educate the viewers some way or another on Japanese culture. Sakura would best be described as a soap opera if it weren't for the fact that the characters are so nice!
