Quotes

Matsuki: [during dance practice, after Okko has collided into Matsuki] Oriko, would you do me a favor and quit?
Okko: Huh?
Matsuki: How long will you carry on like this? This Shinto dance describes the history of our Hananoyu Hot Spring. It couldn't be more important!
Okko: Yeah, I know.
Matsuki: No, you don't!

Japanese Values
3 August 2019 | by Rob-O-CopSee all my reviews

This film was a solid insight into Japanese values and culture. Tradition, death, work ethic, youth, aging, family, spirits, health, food, healing and respect, all set in a beautiful hot spring onsen (bath) village sea side community. There's a lot to like about this film, and even more so if you're ready to look at culture's outside of hollywood western brat formats. A fun watch if a little bit by the numbers for Japanese values.
